Simple cables and a touch of lace make this baby blanket a timeless treasure that is sure to become an instant family heirloom. The delicate drape is perfect for wrapping a newborn in, but with a size slightly larger than most baby blankets it will keep your little one warm for years.
Sutton has both written and charted directions. The center is worked flat from the bottom up, then framed by a thin border of basic knit and purl rounds at the end.
Stitches used include…knit, purl, k2tog, yarn over, knit front and back, a simple 2 stitch cable, and a provisional cast on. If you have never worked a cable or provisional cast on, this is a great project to learn on. Visit my website for more information on these techniques and for video links.
Charted instructions for first st and last st (column 1 & 80) should read as written pattern, ie. always purl on right sides, knit on wrong sides.
Row 1, sts 78 & 79 should read as row 5, sts 78 & 79.
Both errors fixed to PDF on 8/8. Any patterns downloaded after this date will be correct.
