PATTERN DETAILS

Inspired by Hudson Bay bold bright wool blanket, this crib blanket is knit with cream as the main color with thin strips of yellow, orange, red, purple, blue and green. I named it Tug Hill Crib Blanket to celebrate my local area. The Tug Hill Plateau is an upland region in upstate New York, USA near the Adirondack Mountains that is known for its excessive snow fall. We average about 200-300 inches of snow per season and what better way to celebrate than with a warm cozy blanket. The white background represented the six to nine months that we have snow on the ground or in the air. Cables imbedded within the white background show the snow blowing about in the midst of a blizzard. The bits of color celebrate the short time period when our world explodes with colors: yellow daffodils and dandelions explode in the spring and poplar trees show their yellows in the fall orange sunflowers and garden pumpkins arrive in midsummer and the maple trees pop in the fall bright red tulips and poppies bloom in spring and summer and trees show their crimson reds in autumn purple lilacs and violets pop in the spring and the cool evening autumn skies are full of purple hues blue bells, corn flowers and blue skies brighten our word occasionally green grass in the summer and so many varieties of pines, spruces and cedar trees This blanket will keep wee ones toasty warm and surrounded by the colors of upstate New York.

I've been knitting all my life and currently spend most of my waking hours thinking about new ways to knit classic accessories. I love to spin my own yarn, learn new knitting techniques and get creative with felted wool.
