COLORFUL WEDGES BABY BLANKET • Beginner Knitting, February 16 (1-4 pm) Saturday$45.00
This cozy garter stitch blanket is made super fun with color play in between wedges of creamy white. Garter stitch is excellent for baby projects because it's so squishy and stretchy. Swans Island Washable Organic Wool is the perfect yarn for this blanket! Just wait until you come in and see all the gorgeous colors. We love having a knit project like this on our needles because it's a little bit mindless with just enough instruction and color play to keep things interesting. You'll learn how to knit short rows as you create the wedge shapes, which sounds trickier than it is. By the end of the blanket, you'll be a total short row pro! The final blanket is approximately 30 x 30 inches. This is a free pattern from Purl Soho; we have print outs available at Cattywampus.
