Baby's Quilted Knit Blanket

By: Martin Storey for
Babys Quilted Knit Blanket

This Baby's Quilted Knit Blanket is thick, cozy, and absolutely perfect for babies during the colder months. The lovely white and blue coloring is reminiscent of a clear spring sky, which is just the kind of energy you want in the nursery. Worked in a series of squares that are then knit together, you also get the added fun of seeing a bunch of little knit pieces come together to create something bigger. Have those dear to you help you knit some squares so your baby has a little bit of everyone's love in his first blanket.

Insert wadding inside knitted pieces and close 4th side. Stitching through all layers, sew a button onto centre of each square.

Not sure who thinks its a great idea to put all kinds of hand sewn buttons on a baby blanket, seems like it could be quite hazardous for the baby.

Who is the manufacturer of the yarn mentioned? Is it Sublime Yarns?

Hi DiamondLou, Rowan is the manufacturer of the yarn mentioned above. We hope this helps! Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I was going to purchase 6 skies of yarn but the shipping cost is too high
