This holiday season, the Shale Baby blanket is available as a thoughtfully hand-assembled kit so you or your favorite knitter can cast on right away! Purchase your kit here.

The vintage charm of an heirloom baby blanket will keep your little ones warm and snug for years to come. The Shale Baby Blanket nods to nursery knits of yesteryear with a four-row repeat of a variation on the Feather-and-Fan motif, teasing a pretty, undulating edge from the paired ridges of garter stitch at top and bottom. Knit with Shelter or Arbor, texture and color variations for this classic blanket are endless.
