A sweet little baby blanket designed for a precious new baby. The Arches Baby Blanket knitting pattern also includes a pattern for a simple baby hat and mittens.

I am not a pattern designer. I simply enjoy playing around with stitches and seeing what happens. If you spot a mistake or have a question please send me a message.

The blanket at 85cm x 73cm (after blocking) is sized to fit a crib, moses basket, carrycot, pram or stroller.
The hat and mittens will fit an average baby up to about 3 months.

Things you may like to know before downloading the pattern.

This pattern is written in a line by line format.
Skills needed are cast on and bind off, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, pass slip stitch over, slip slip knit, knit 2 together, yarn overs and yarn round needle.
The blanket is knit in a single piece.
Pattern repeat is 16 stitches and 16 rows.
The hat and mittens can be knit flat or in the round.
There are 3 download versions available all are the same pattern but with differing numbers of pictures/file sizes

The pattern is easy to adapt for different sizes by adding or subtracting stitches and pattern repeats, or for a quicker knit use aran weight yarn. These changes will affect the amount of yarn required.

Pattern updated October 2019.
