A uber-soft baby blanket

I came across this super soft thick yarn – the Katia Bambi range and fell in love with the colours as well the texture – it is so luxurious and velvety – and ideal for a baby blanket. So, I decided to make a modern granny square version and not being a fan of the traditional pink or blue, opted for a more neutral combination of lilac and yellow.

While the yarn is gorgeous, it is not very forgiving if you need to do any rework – so, avoid making mistakes :).

Hope it inspires you!

Colourful Lined Baby blanket

I came across this  lovely pattern on a blog called (Mille Makes) and have adapted it to make a stylish baby blanket: https://millemakes.wordpress.com/2011/05/22/something-pretty-the-pattern/

I lined it with flannel (that was quite challenging!), as the design has holes and you  don’t want little fingers from getting caught in the design. This is a fantastic way to use up any left ofver yarn.
