Noughts and Crosses Baby Blanket Digital Download

Sale price$10.00


This knitting pattern PDF is for the Noughts and Crosses Baby Blanket - a wonderfully textured blanket with a unique construction and quirky design detail.

This blanket is a rewarding and eye-catching knit and is a perfect gift for that special baby.

It is designed with the knitter in mind, with great attention to small details and simple and tidy finishing.

Four separate wedges, beginning with the outer contrasting edging, are worked backwards and forwards in rows. The sides of the wedges are joined using mattress stitch, then the centre is completed over six rounds.

The edging of ‘noughts’ is a modified feather and fan stitch pattern with stitches cast off and cast on to create large holes. The textured pattern of simple crosses is worked into the shaping sequence and is easily memorised. The fashioned decreasing worked along the sides creates an easy sewing edge, perfect for mattress stitch.

The blanket can be worked in two or five colours: with the contrast edging in a single colour or each side edging in a different colour.

The Noughts and Crosses Blanket requires intermediate knitting skills.
