Pattern Description:

This blanket and matching hat were inspired by the beautiful softness and adorable colour of the recommended yarn, Cocoon by Bergre de France. Candice is the name of the adorable lilac-pink colour shown in the photos.

It is a very unusual yarn, slightly fluffy and very light and airy even though it's rather chunky. I just knew I had to make something snuggly with it, and with a name like Candice, it had to be girly!

The honeycomb pattern stitch produces an extra thick fabric, ideal for wrapping little ones up in the soft warmth of a handmade blanket. The honeycomb stitch uses a lot of single cables so if you can learn to cable without a cable needle, you will save a lot of time and sanity, especially for the blanket!

Gauge:

14 x 17 in Stockinette st on 6 mm needles.

Materials:

  • 6 mm circular knitting needles
  • 1 cable needle

You Will Also Need:

  • Knowing how to cable knit without a cable needle is a plus if making the blanket

Suggested yarn:

1050 meters of Chunky weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Cocoon by Bergre de France

Colorway:

Candice (soft pink)
