Baby blanket knitting patterns come in all shapes and styles nowadays, from traditional styles, to much more modern ones like Fearne. Not only have I chosen a sleek pattern for this design, I’ve knitted my sample in a lovely deep olive green - straying from the more traditional shades you often see baby blankets knitted in.

When designing Fearne, I decided I wanted to use large blocks of stockinette stitch, with little squares of texture to break it up. In the past I’ve been hesitant to use stockinette stitch as lots of rows of purling can become a bit tedious, but I think the 10 row repeat gives enough variety to stop that happening in this design.

Guage isn’t important as long as it remains consistent and you use the right size needles for the weight of yarn you choose.
