Welcome a new baby with a blanket that shows how excited you are to meet them. Knitted in a soft chunky yarn, Sandra’s picked contemporary colours for a fun project you can gift to both boys and girls. If you want to up the style stakes, knit the letters in black for a monochrome look, or choose soft pastels for a subtle finish.

Ideal for tucking into a cot or pram, the blanket’s smaller scale also makes it a great introduction to intarsia – the technique of knitting motifs with multiple colours.

The main body of the blanket is knitted in stocking stitch with a moss stitch border, while the letters are added using intarsia. Unlike techniques such as Fair Isle, only one colour is worked across the row with intarsia, so you won’t carry the yarn across the back of the work.

Knit using your favorite Super Bulky yarn.
