Today’s featured pattern is the lovely Celtic Child Small Miracles Baby Blanket designed by Luise O’Neill of Cranberry Ocean Knits. Created in organic cotton using a moss stitch that alternates with a diamond cabled leaf pattern, this blanket would make a wonderful baby shower gift or would be perfect to give to someone who enjoys lovely lap blankets!
This pattern is worked flat in one piece and is finished off by a lovely moss stitch border. Knitters will love this pattern as it contains detailed written step-by-step instructions as well as fully charted instructions. This project requires approximately 820 yards of sport weight yarn (model knitted using Knit Picks Organic Cotton Sport) and a size US 3 knitting needle, or size to match a gauge of 24 stitches and 30 rows to equal 4 inches in stockinette. The finished size of this blanket measures 27 ½ x 27 ½” ( 70 x 70 cm ).
Yarn Suggestions: Blue Sky Alpacas Sport, Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Cotton, Cascade Heritage, Pakucho Organic Cotton, Debbie Bliss: Eco Baby Fair Trade Organic Cotton or Queensland Collection: Joey’s Baby Silk
