Walter is a sweet, colour-blocked baby blanket with endless colour combination possibilities. The geometric motif is a neutral choice for any baby, making this blanket a great shower gift for parents-to-be. Worked in a soft, superwash wool for both warmth and ease of care, Walter is a great size for cribs, bassinets, and strollers.

This blanket is worked in four pieces. Each piece consists of four triangles that are joined seamlessly by picking up stitches. The pattern contains a schematic that gives a visual representation of how each triangle is picked up and worked. The pieces are then blocked and seamed together using a type of Mattress Stitch for Garter Stitch seams.

Stitch pattern is written only (no charts).
