Here is my first design for a baby pattern. While making this design, I mostly had two things in mind:
- material: I went for a cotton and bamboo mix yarn, because these materials are very gentle for babies, and I like how the materials drape. Of course, you don’t have to use a cotton/bamboo mix, you can use whatever kind of fine yarn you want.
- Texture: babies can’t see very well the first months, i.e. details or colour, so I wanted to create a textured blanket that would be interesting for the baby in this way.
The pattern is approx. 85 cm by 80 cm, but with the yarn I used, there’s quite a lot of stretch, so it won’t be too constricting.
The pattern is in English. It provides written instructions, row by row. But a chart is included for those who prefer to knit with a chart.A Dutch/Flemish version is also available on this website.
10 cm x 10 cm: 23 stitches x 32 rows in stockinette stitch
I used approx. 4 skeins 100 gr/250 m Bamboo yarn from Atelier Veritas (60% bamboo, 40% cotton), colour ocre. Yarn weight: fine.
• 3 mm needles
• 3 mm crochet needle or tapestry needle for weaving in the ends
• Yarn over
• Tubular bind off, but you can also do a regular bind off if tubular is too difficult.
Pattern is also available on Ravelry and LoveCrafts.
