”Far up in the shadows a cheerful light gleamed out through the trees from the kitchen at Green Gables. Anne suddenly came close to Marilla and slipped her hand into the older woman’s hard palm. ‘It’s lovely to be going home and know it’s home. I love Green Gables already, and I never loved any place before. No place ever seemed like home.’”

There’s nothing like a handmade baby blanket to make a nursery feel more “homey” for a new baby. Green Gables Blanket is the second pattern in the Green Gables Collection of patterns inspired by the books by L.M. Montgomery and the stories of Anne. The iconic house that Anne grows up in and grows to love is the color inspiration for this simple Tunisian crochet baby blanket. The mile-a-minute strips are made in two shades of green using the Tunisian simple stitch that are then edged in cream and joined together. The simple single crochet and double crochet edging helps frame the strips to make a sweet neutral blanket for any new baby.
