This simple cuddly blanket will be your go to pattern for years to come. Start out in the center and work your way out in the round to create an heirloom blanket with your own special touch. This sweet blanket is fun and skill building. The color combinations are endless and the size of the blanket can be easily adjusted by adding alternating increase rounds.

Check out my other palette inspiration included with the pattern. You can easily sub another worsted weight yarn, but the drape and feel of the plymouth worsted merino superwash is dreamy!

Note about Gauge: the gauge is not absolutely critical in this blanket because you can always adjust sizing by continuing to increase. Just make sure your not at a tight gauge because you want the blanket to block and stretch properly.
