This Baby Blanket inspired by Espace Tricot is the perfect gift. We knit this one using 3 skeins of Classic Elite Yarns Sprout. Sprout is a super soft chunky 100% Organic Cotton. I love the idea of knitting the blanket using color blocking. It makes the project go by so quickly without counting rows, but you still have the option of multiple colors. It also keeps you from having lots of ends to weave in at the end.
Using a size 10.5 needle, I scaled down the number of repeats I had across the row by casting on 97. Then just knit each color until you have finished almost the entire hank and ending on a wrong side row then switch colors. This adjustment gives you a finish size of 24″ x 28″, just perfect for a car seat!! To take a look at the original pattern just click here.
