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 am nervous of tackling anything complicated".
This blanket it the perfect project for the new, nervous, or lapsed knitter and has been especially popular with our mums-to-be due to its simple and contemporary look, it's perfect for a bassinet or a baby car seat.
As per our shop motto, this blanket really does keep the knitting simple and lets the wool speak for itself. Using the 2 basic stitches of knit and purl and the most glorious merino wool, this project ticks all the boxes. It's easy to knit, the luxurious wool gives a beautiful stitch definition, and the bold blocks of colour mean you can have a great deal of fun choosing your shades. As an added bonus the wool is also machine washable.
