Picot-Edge Baby Blanket & Washcloth
This easy garter-stitch blanket is based
on the washcloth pattern our grannies
used to make. We’ve added a pretty picot
edge to dress it up, but you can leave it
unadorned if you like. The washcloth
makes a nice shower or housewarming gift
tied up with a bar of soap. For a grown-up
throw or afghan—just keep on knitting!
This blanket or washcloth is
worked diagonally from one corner,
increased to a triangle midway,
then decreased to the opposite corner.
We’ve added a free addendum to the pattern for knitting the washcloth with Rowan Creative Linen. Find the addendum and more details on the Creative Linen Washcloth Project page.
