Pattern Description:

The original Little Ellie Blanket was made as a welcome to our world gift for my friend Carle's baby boy. Warm and soft, it is perfect for a new baby or even a toddler. Knit in linen stitch with a moss stitch border, the blanket is an easy knit. The applique elephant is also easy to do and the freestyle tree is a little more challenging. I used ColourSpun Pure Cotton Chunky yarn (about 85m per 100g) but it works just as well in wool.

Gauge:

Since this is not something that needs to fit, gauge is not too important, you need a soft but not loose fabric.

Materials:

  • ColourSpun Pure Cotton Chunky Yarn - 10 x 100g
  • Scrap of Black Yarn
  • Brown and grey quilting or embroidery thread
  • 10mm knitting needles
  • 8mm knitting needles
  • wool/tapestry needle
  • small scissors
  • safety pins

Suggested yarn:

900 meters of Chunky weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

ColourSpun Pure Cotton Chunky
