Quick, Pretty Knit

I thought I’d quickly share this knit with you before I wrap it and send it off to it’s new owner.

You might have seen the photo of the blanket I started for our friends new baby in my last post.  The pattern is from  James C. Brett, number 173 and uses their Flutterby yarn which looks really pretty but (confession time) I’m not so fond of knitting with.

I’ve used Hayfield Baby Chunky and the blanket which is pram size only used 2 x 100g balls.  The garter stitch border adds definition and there are only 4 rows to the lace pattern which becomes very memorable after a few repeats.  This really was a quick knit and I can see it being a pattern I’ll use again and again, great for last minute knitting.

The blanket dimensions are approximately 30″ x 20″

Best of all the colour (406) is almost identical to the rosy pink I used in the Gidday  Baby Cardigan and the hat.  Lets hope the baby’s parents aren’t allergic to pink.

Happy Knitting!
