This easy knitting pattern might be my favorite baby blanket I’ve made recently.
I think maybe I say that about all of them because baby blankets, in general, are delightful, and other than someone picking a bad color, I’ve never seen a truly ugly baby blanket. But I especially love this one.
Look! Tiny boats! This would be so sweet in a nautical nursery. Actually, nautical nurseries are such a good idea, because they’re cute for babies but they can easily grow with children and can even see them all the way through high school. We don’t need to think that far into the future, though. We can simply knit charming blankets for tiny babies and enjoy the present.
My only tip for this blanket is that you get a yarn that knits kind of tightly so that you can see the pattern. This isn’t a pattern for fuzzy or fluffy yarn because the boats won’t be very well defined. I used Lion Brand Pound of Love, which is great because all the yarn you need for one blanket is there in one skein. And then, a needle that isn’t too big, either. Size 8 is perfect.
You can find the pattern in my brand-spanking-new store. Yes! A store! I have big plans…big plans…for this store. Exciting stuff!
If you do knit up the pattern, I’d love to hear how it goes! You can comment below or in find me in Ravelry to let me know how things are going.
