Baby Leaf Blanket is Complete

I still need to block it before I gift it, but the Baby Leaf Blanket is off my needles!

The blanket is so soft and inviting; I love the leaves. It will be gifted to a dear friend who 
is awaiting the arrival of her first grandchild.

I had taken the blanket off my needles last week after knitting five repeats of the pattern as suggested, but it was too small so I "frogged" and put it back on my needles to continue knitting. I added an additional three repeats and am now happy with the size.

Once it is blocked it may be even a bit bigger, which is better than too small.

The pattern is free on Ravelry.  It calls to be knitted with double stranded yarn, but I didn't want such a bulky blanket and decided to knit using one strand of worsted weight yarn. Hence, I had to modify the pattern.  

I co 160 stitches using size 6 needles and knit eight pattern repeats instead of five. I used nearly four skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn (color seaspray).


  1. I like all the blankets you do, but I really like this one! The leaves are so pretty!

  2. This is such a pretty blanket and I'm sure it will be well apreciated.
