Lille En (meaning “Little One” in Danish) is a squishy treat of a baby set that any new mother would cherish. The set is done completely in the bounciest garter stitch with a simple Garter Check Pattern that could also be done in even simpler garter stripes. The Lille En Vest is the perfect layering piece for chilly days and the matching bonnet is so sweet. Who can resist? The Lille En Blanket is worked holding two strands of Home Worsted Weight yarn together creating a super bulky and extra-squishy baby blanket that knits up lickety-split!

The Lille En Blanket is available as a free pattern on the Barrett Wool Co. Journal! It is also included in this pattern for convenience.
