Doesn’t every baby need a snuggly blanket? This sized pattern is perfect for using in the car seat, the pram or stroller, or for the afternoon cuddle before their nap. (well, let’s face it, you need a nap too!)

A little bit of texture and interest means it’s ideal for placing on the floor while baby is thinking about crawling and exploring different shapes and stitches.

Knitted in Wool And The Gang’s Shiny Happy Cotton, a beautifully smooth Peruvian cotton, from sustainable sources, this washes well and will last many years for new babies in your life.

Who is this for?
This pattern is ideal for a knitter with beginner skills, who wants to knit something for baby with a little interest to keep you motivated.
Just the basics of knitting jargon is used; simple knit and purl and you’ll be following charts, or longer areas of written pattern to create the diamonds and hearts.

Diamonds and hearts are written in longhand pattern or in charts, so you can follow whichever you prefer.
To make it easy they are both symmetrical patterns. If you go the wrong way through the chart on one row your family won’t need to hide from your rage by going out for pizza while you fix it!
