** Guage is not important as long as your tension is consistent **

Baby Blankets don’t have to be complicated to be beautiful, even something as a plain garter stitch blanket can look so snuggly and inviting knitted well, and in the right yarn.

Henry is just one small step away from a Garter Stitch blanket. I’ve added in one row of purl stitches which transforms what would be a very plain (but beautiful) blanket, into one that has bags of texture, but remains a super simple quick knit.

I’ve chosen to knit this blanket in a rich dark purple instead of the pastel shades you often see baby blankets knitted it. I think the darker colour helps the subtle texture of the purl stitches shine through.
