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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, yarn over, single and double decrease SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS calculated size for a baby blanket, can be easily customized

Recommended with this pattern

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

Knitting and crocheting are an addiction. I love the moment of creation! I have tried a lot of crafts, but these have stayed with me for most of my life. My first project was a dress for my doll at the age of 5 or 6, with some help of my grandmother. It was fairly good in fact, even had a pattern that I remember still. From scarves and vests, I have done sweaters and shawls even at an early age - both crocheted and knitted. Here I have to say big thanks to my mother, who was always a little pushy with me about finishing the projects when I was getting bored with them� :) Lately I have developed and addiction to making shawls and scarves. I just love them! I like trying out new techniques and patterns, there is always something I have not done yet� I speak (and read) fluent English, Latvian, Greek and Russian, but I will answer my messages in English or Latvian.
