As a baseball fan who lives in the Midwest, I know that there are a few months of the long baseball season where sitting through a 3 hour game is not all sunshine and cold beers. April and May baseball games are cold, and bundling up like you are going on a ski trip is necessary. That is where this fun Stadium Blanket comes in! It’s small enough to pack in your bag, but all that knit blanket warmth will keep even a fair weather fan happy through the 9th inning. Customize this three color blanket to match your team’s colors and knit one for your whole family.

Notes: Construction starts at the center of the blanket with double pointed needles. Once there are enough sts you change to a circular needle. Be sure to change colors on even rounds, not inc rounds. This will keep your color changes clean at your increase points. The blanket is easily made larger or smaller by working more or fewer rounds in each color.
