Got a new baby on the way, or a baby shower coming up?
Whether for boy or girl, The Serengeti is a combination knit/crocheted baby blanket in a car-seat size which is quick and easy - a departure from the typical pastel baby blanket.
Uses 4 colors to represent the African Serengeti, or you can choose your own colors for a different effect.
Perfect for the summer baby when made with Knit Picks Simply Cotton yarn (machine wash/dry) or any easy-care cotton yarn.
Want a larger blanket? Just use worsted weight yarn with bigger needles/hook.
The main body of the blanket uses a sampling of easy texture stitches (knitted), the 2 end borders are crocheted ‘as you go’, with the side edges crocheted last.
Weave a ribbon in and out of the crocheted border to give it that final ‘wow’ factor!
