Wednesday’s Pattern – Celtic Child Small Miracles Baby Blanket

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
