Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over, single and double decrease

Pattern Description:

This really sweet lace blanket will be a piece that's treasured! Pattern includes chart as well as written instructions.

The pattern is written for a square blanket, knit in DK weight yarn it will result in approx 27" square. It is very easy to adjust the size though, making it smaller, bigger, wider or longer. You can use any yarn from fingering to worsted, adjusting size of your needles accordingly.

I recommend using 2 stitch markers to mark edge stitches, so you don't pass them on the wrong side rows. Some knitters would mark pattern repeats, too, in which case you will need 11 markers (or more if you are doing more pattern repeats).

The pattern is an easy to read lace and usually after knitting first couple repeats it flows fairly easy. It does not use any complex stitches.

You will need to do left/right leaning decreases, double decreases, yarn overs, knit and purl, but it requires some concentration. I would recommend it for someone who has knit lace before.

The pattern has been test-knit for both - written and charted instructions by a wonderful group of test-knitters.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • calculated size for a baby blanket, can be easily customized

Materials:

  • you will need about 600 yards of DK weight yarn for a baby blanket and you can increase the size and yardage to your own liking. You can use fingering to aran weight yarns with beautiful results. Choose appropriate needles for your yarn

You Will Also Need:

  • 2 stitch markers for marking the edge stitches, tapestry needle for weaving in the ends.
