This adorable baby blanket is knit with doubled strands of Cascade Yarns Eco+ Peruvian wool yarn. This yarn is soft enough for a baby and comes in huge 8.75 oz. hanks, so there's far fewer ends to weave in! The easy-to-knit watermelon shape is knit in the round, from the center out, into a large circle. Short rows turn the circle into an oval. The watermelon seeds are embroidered on last. What baby wouldn't look even more precious lying under or on top of this blanket!
