You are invited to join me on a mystery baby blanket project! I will give instructions for the baby blanket over the course of the next few weeks/month or so, and you will knit along blindly, without knowing what the end product will look like. The blanket will be gender neutral, depending on your color selections. And I promise super cuteness!!
So who is in?
I have selected Sublime Organic Cotton for my version. Other yarn options might be Rowan Wool Cotton, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK, Sublime Soya Cotton, Sirdar Calico or Luxury Soft Cotton, Debbie Bliss Rialto or Debbie Bliss Prima. Most of these are available in the area.
Your supplies needed are:
Notions: stitch markers of two different colors
Needles: 24″ US#5 circular needle for magic loop method or set of straight and set of double pointed needles in US #5
Color A – tan, brown or chocolate, 250 (2 balls Sublime) – I am using Sublime Organic Cotton color Nutmeg
Color B – your choice of baby color, 250 yards (2 balls Sublime) – I am using color Drift
Color C – your choice of baby color, 250 yards (2 balls Sublime) – I am using color Laundry
Color D – your choice of baby color, 250 yards (2 balls Sublime) – I am using color Maize
Color E – your choice of baby color, 250 yards (2 balls Sublime) – I am using color Raspberry Tea
150 yards cream or white (1 ball sublime Rice Pudding)
150 yards green (1 ball sublime – I am using Sublime color Bean or Peapod) – note that one of colors B, C, or D could also be green, just be sure to buy a total of 3 balls
Skills needed: ability to knit and purl, work in the round, increase and decrease
So…if you are up for knitting along blindly with me, take the next couple of weeks to gather your yarn together. We will start up the week of March 2, just in time for the Spring baby season!
