Here is a sunshine themed baby blanket that can be knit for both baby boys and girls! I designed this to be given to a new mommy at her “You Are My Sunshine” themed baby shower. The yellow is for sunshine and the white and gray is for “you make me happy when skies are gray”.

The pattern is for a stroller sized blanket, using size 8 needles and worsted weight yarn. At 4 stitches per inch, the blanket will be about 26 x 28 when finished.

The stitches used are Knit, Purl, YO and K2tog. There is a chart for the sun followed by written directions for those who prefer not to use a chart.

Most of the yarn required is yellow, with some partial skeins of white and gray. Different color combinations could be used, limited only by your imagination!

I like my baby blankets to tell a story. This is a fun and quick knit which will be cherished for years to come!
