Pattern Description:

Here is a special blanket for a special baby that is impressive, yet practical. The Filigree Lace-edged Baby Blanket combines a pleasingly reversible Filigree lace stitch around the edges with a cushiony garter stitch center for cuddly warmth. This predominantly solid-fabric blanket is great for those who want a bit of impressive lace, yet are concerned about holes in which baby could get their fingers caught.

Start with just a bit of lacy pattern knitted circularly to dress up the outer edges of this utilitarian beauty. Then the center is knitted back and forth in garter stitch on the diagonal, forming a square to fill in the center of the baby blanket while attaching itself to the edging at the same time. No seams to sew!

Gauge:

5.25 stitches/inch over lace stitch pattern

Materials:

  • 1000 yards sport weight yarn
  • Size US 6 (4 mm) knitting needles suggested
