Pattern Description:

A very simple slip stitch pattern is the main feature of this snuggely baby blanket in two sizes.

It creates a lovely soft, squishy fabric with enough cushioning for you to use it at playtime on the floor.
Knit from easy care cotton or blends, but you can make it from wool as well.

The reverse also looks nice, like a striped garter stitch, so basically, the blanket has two "good" sides.
Perfect gift idea and also a great project for expecting mums, we all know how good knitting is for you, and this is a relaxing kind of project.

A chart for the stitch is included in the instructions but it wont take a long for you to remember it off by heart.

You can play around with the colour choices for the stripes to personalise your blanket.
Would look lovely in primary colours or earthy tones.
