Car seat blanket for spring/summer babies. Larger needle than normally used for DK yarn gives an airy, drapey fabric; perfect for warmer temps. Uses 4 colors to achieve a beach umbrella look.
Works up great in cotton, too. Knit Picks simply cotton sport with #8 needles.
Very suitable for beginners - it’s garter stitch!
