Pattern Details

Hot air balloons are a familiar sight over Bristol every year as it is the site of the Balloon Fiesta. To celebrate this I have designed this baby pram size blanket although it could easily be made in a larger size, say as a picnic blanket. This fun blanket uses the modular knitting technique familiar to Horst Schulz or Alison Ellen. The first strip of balloons is knitted and subsequent strips of balloons are joined as you knit. Between the strips there are garter stitch rows. This pattern has been tech edited and test knitted to ensure a pleasant knitting experience.
