This gorgeous, cabled baby blanket is full of texture, and will make a timeless gift that is sure be enjoyed and treasured for years.

This crochet baby blanket, featuring a border of 16 cabled owls, is worked from the center out. The owls buttons eyes are attached as you go, making it safer for baby. Also, the textured stitches hide the join at the end of each round, so other than the last few rounds of the owl panel (as shown in the 5th picture) the border is barely noticeable.

This crochet pattern includes lots of colour pictures to help you to successfully complete your project, but please note that the pattern is written in a condensed manner, so good pattern reading skills is recommended. The pattern calls for 4½ skeins of Berroco Vintage worsted weight yarn 100 g (3.5 oz)/200 meters (217 yards) per skein, and 32 – 16 mm (5/8”) buttons. The pattern uses the following stitches and techniques: adjustable ring, ch, sc, hdc, dc, fpdc, bpdc, fptr and picot and cluster. Instructions for the latter 5 stitches are included.

Finished Size: Unblocked = 68.6 cm (27”) by 68.6 cm (27”). Blocked = 71 cm (28”) by 71 cm (28”). Please note that the size is approximate and will be affected by the gauge and the brand of yarn.
