Blanket - Stella Blanket
This is a versatile baby blanket, great for tucking around baby in the stroller or car seat as the points don’t get in the way of the harness. It’s also good for nap time or tummy time. Choose a machine washable yarn for the least bother for the new parents!
The pattern is written to make a 75cm inner diameter / 110cm outer diameter blanket from 8ply/DK yarn. The pattern can easily be used as a recipe for other yarn weights and blanket sizes, as once the set-up is done the blanket is made from just two easy-to-remember rows – but have plenty of yarn available as the outer rows just eat up the yarn. It is knit in the round from the centre outwards.
