All new arrivals deserve to be wrapped in love, and what better way to provide this than with a warm and cosy shawl and blanket. From baby’s earliest days to when they’re up and about on their own, a special shawl and blanket can be a comfort and a reassurance in an exciting new world.
The shawl and blanket are created using a combination of simple stitches to create the basketweave effect, made more interesting with the addition of a delicate eyelet feature in alternate squares, and completed with a pretty eyelet edging.
Knitted in Sirdar Snuggly DK 50g, a soft and gentle acrylic yarn which is machine washable and can be tumble dried.
When complete, your shawl will measure approximately 101 x 101cm (39.75 x 39.75"), and the blanket approximately 56 x 61cm (22 x 24"). To complete your shawl and blanket you will need 3.25mm, 4.0mm (US3 and US6) and you may prefer to use 4mm (US6) 80cm circular needle, due to the large number of stitches.
