This cute baby blanket is as sweet as the pastel colored French confection. Really easy and very quick to make, it looks especially nice with a fabric backing. It’s perfect for beginning knitters, but does use a couple of techniques beyond basic knit and purl, so it’s a great opportunity to learn.

You need to be (or become) able to:

Knit & purl
Use the provisional cast on
Pick up stitches

The stitch pattern is written in a very detailed manner for the real beginner. Some of the other techniques might require some looking up if you’re not yet familiar with them.

Yardage neededis based on the original sample.
(see project notes here).

But you can easily adjust it to any size you want. In the pattern I go briefly into how to do the math on gauge and # of stitches to cast on.
