On days like these where it’s a mere 17 degrees outside, nothing sounds better than to curl up on the couch with a hot cup of tea with a soft blanket over my lap. And to me it just makes sense that the blanket in this image should be one that I’m actually knitting. Because honestly, who wants to knit a blanket during our notorious 110 degree summers? So why not take advantage of this cold weather and benefit from some mindless knitting at the same time?
Amberly knit this wonderful chevron baby blanket out of Classic Elite’s Sprout. Sprout is a machine washable, chunky, organic cotton yarn with a soft feel, which makes it perfect for any child. Because you knit this blanket on size 10 needles, it doesn’t take long before you have an incredibly warm and squishy blanket. If you want to knit a child-sized blanket just like the one in the picture, you will need six skeins of your main color and one skein for each of your stripes. This pattern is for a baby blanket, but of course it wouldn’t be difficult at all to modify the number of cast on stitches in order to make an adult sized blanket. After all, who says you can’t knit this fantastic blanket for yourself? I also think this blanket would be amazing out of Cascade 120 Superwash merino.
