Leafy Greens Blanket

The stork carefully stored the package that Jorth handed to him, carefully wrapped in brown paper and string, and as he flew off into the sunset he had one simple, grateful thought: that delivering presents for soon-to-arrive babies was sure as heck a lot easier than delivering the bubs themselves.

Project Details
Pattern: Leafy Baby Blanket by Leyla Alieva (free pattern!)
Yarn: 7 balls of Zara by Filatura Di Crosa, yarn held double throughout
Needles: 5mm needles

I really, REALLY enjoyed knitting this sweet baby blanket up. Since the yarn was held double, it went by pretty quick, and I would have gotten it finished sooner except I ran one ball short, so had to dash off to the yarn store before I could finish it. D'oh!

The blanket itself isn't huge, but is the perfect size for tucking into a pram or over a car seat to keep their precious occupant snug and warm. This is a definite knitting win to chalk up on the board!

Ravelried here.

  3. Such a luscious looking blanket, in both colour, texture and pattern! I'm knitting a baby blanket myself at the moment, so this is absolutely giving me a little bit more of a push to get it done! :)

  7. Just beautiful! The green is probably the best colour you could have used. I expect there will soon be a lot of copycat projects in the same colour way in the works!

  9. I am in awe of your knitting skills! This is such a gorgeous blanket, and I'm sure it will be cherished for years to come, even after it has become too small to keep it's owner warm.
