New Pattern: Color Block Blanket

IMG_0364

Fall is finally here in Northern California! Time to start knitting fall accessories and start on Christmas gifts. Here is a perfect pint-sized project that would make a great gift.

This petite blanket is perfectly baby-sized or lap-sized, whichever you prefer, or both! Squooshy garter stitch edging around a simple stockinette pattern makes for both a timeless design and soothing (and quick) knitting for you.

It takes about 450 yards of worsted weight yarn on US 6 (4mm) needles. It only took me about a week to make – knitting an hour or two each evening while watching baseball.

I knit my Color Block Blanket using Knit Picks Comfy Worsted yarn. It’s a cotton (75%) / acrylic (25%) blend that is so incredibly soft. And machine washable!

Pattern available at Ravelry or materialsciknits.com. $2.50
