Sunshine Day Baby Throw

Sunshine Day Baby Throw

Welcome the newest addition to your family with this delightful Sunshine Day Baby Throw. This simple knitted baby blanket will add a splash of color to any room and is sure to be a favorite. The random dashes of color in this easy baby blanket pattern are caused by knitting with two different colored yarns at the same time. The use of multiple yarns makes this blanket twice as warm. This project is perfect for beginning knitters; if you do a knit stitch, you can make this delightful throw.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I absolutely hate mixing fibers in a project, when its washed, the cotton will shrink and the acrylic will stretch and it just never looks the same after and can't be repaired.

Your site is a source of inspiration all year round. This baby blanket using leftover yarns was made with a baby boy in mind. Thanks for giving me so many ideas.

So gorgeous and exactly what I have been looking for! A friend has just welcomed baby boy Billy into the world and I am wanting to make something for him. With winter coming this is going to be just perfect (our winters in South Africa are quite mild). I love the colors they have used and will probably use a few of those mixed in with yarns I already have.

My Daughter has knitted this it's gorgeous.

Good Evening, Just wondered if some-one could help me. I have tons of POUND OF LOVE yarn by LION BRAND and I was wondering if I can MIX VANNA'S CHOICE YARN WITH IT? I hope to KNIT it in a GARTER Stitch so that it will go faster. I hope to Cast On 90 Stitches so it is a Little Bigger. Also, why are we mixing VANNA'S CHOICE YARN WITH COTTON EASE YARN? Thank you for your help in advance.

yes, you could mix the Vanna's choice and pound of love together. As far as mixing the two types of yarn that's something only the designer could answer, personally I don't like mixing cotton with acrylic because when it comes time to wash it the cotton will shrink and the acrylic will not. I expect that it probably has something to do with texture. Garter stitch will go faster, but you probably won't be able to get the gauge in garter stitch and you will not have a flat side with garter stitch either, both of these reason should be considered if you just give up on the pattern and go your own way. hope this helps.

Love this idea! I made it but added a garter stitch border. Such fun using old yarn stash and picking colors-- like painting.

Good Evening, I wanted to know what yarns did Deekraus 6485777 use? What needles and how many stitches? I Love her idea of adding the Garter stitch border. I need to make a baby blanket and I wanted to follow her idea. Thank you for your help.

How do I print this one? Thank you.

Why stockinette stitch? Garter stitch is easier and faster and doesn't curl at the bottom the way the one in the photo does.

The gauge for the pattern is based on stocking stitch, so if you go with garter and abandon the pattern you probably won't be able to achieve the gauge and you will not have a flat side on the blanket-both of these need to be considered before abandoning the pattern and doing what you want. hope this helps.
