Ladies frequently come into the store and open the conversation with: "I haven't knitted for 30 years and I am going to be a Grandma. I want to knit for my new grandchild but I'm nervous of tackling anything complicated".

This blanket it the perfect project for the new, nervous or lapsed knitter.

Using the 2 basic stitches of knit and purl and the most glorious alpaca yarn, this project ticks all the boxes. Its easy to knit, and the luxurious yarn is perfect for a very special baby.

To make your life as simple as possible we will pop a length of contrast yarn into your parcel for the lazy daisy embroidery. 

  • Yarn: 3 balls of Chaska Takama Organic Cotton and dye free Alpaca. This is the perfect blend of fibers for a Summer weight blanket. For a Winter arrival we suggest our warmer weight alpaca blanket 'Fernando' knitted in Pure Baby Alpaca. 
  • Needles:  4mm needles, however if you feel you knit slightly on the loose side I would suggest using 3.75 mm needles. A big-eyed sewing needle for securing your yarn ends.
  • Size: Approximately 75 cm long and 55 cm wide. Perfect for a bassinet or a baby car seat.
  • Sample Colour: 'Pedro' a delightful soft caramel shade.
