About the Design
This fun baby blanket is knit with doubled strands of Cascade Yarns Eco+ Peruvian wool yarn, which is soft enough for a baby.

The pumpkin blocks are portable, which is helpful when working on a large project. The blanket is comprised of six whole and four half blocks.

Each block is mattress stitched or slip stitch crocheted to its neighbor, then the rows of blocks are duplicate stitched together. The seed stitch edging is worked one side at a time. The pumpkin stems are knit, then sewn on. The couched vine tendrils lend the final embellishment.

Size: one size – 32″ wide x 40″ long

Yarn: Cascade Yarns Eco+, 100% Peruvian wool, approx. 478 yd / 250 gram hank: 3 hanks #2749 Orange (MC) and 1 hank #7097 Forest Green (CC)

Gauge: 14 sts and 20 rows = 4″ (10 cm) in St st with 2 strands yarn and size 10.5 (6.5 mm) ndls or size to give gauge. To save time, take time to check gauge.
