Baby Love

Baby Love

A double knit baby blanket.

Well there IS a new baby in the family, with little Marlo brightening our lives these last 7 months.  The Bloke is now a Poppy and a very happy Poppy too.  

And this blankie keeps Marlo warm in her cot in Sydney.

Reckon you might like to make it too?
The pattern is here....

Knitting technique:  Double Knitting
Measurements:  80 x 106 cm (31 x 43 in)

VERY IMPORTANT TIP:  if you have never done double knitting before, there are many free lessons on Youtube but the very best lessons are by Lucy Neatby on Craftsy.  Start with a small practice square of squares and then a small square with one heart to test your skills before you invest all your time and energy into the blankie. It will be worth it.

Tools:  5mm circular needles with 100cm cable length, US No.8, UK No.6 with 39in cable length. 4mm double pointed needles, US No.6, No.8 UK.

Equipment:  Magnetic needlework chart holder (essential for ease of reading graphs), scissors and a 4mm crochet hook (for whisking away joined yarn ends and for fixing things). Oh, and 5 counting markers.
