Logan Baby Blanket

Friday, March 12, 2010
What a sweet little blanket, with an easy to remember lace pattern that gives a great graphical punch to a simple knit. The eyelets could look like hearts, birds, tents, mountains, or faces, depending on the angle of view and the imagination of the viewer.

Instructions are given for two weights (DK and Worsted) and two sizes (half and full); enough variation in one pattern for the overworked auntie or grandma!


Available for $6 in my Ravelry store (no registration necessary; pay by PayPal)

The sample shown is knit in Valley Yarns Sugarloaf. Many many thanks to Kathy Elkins and WEBS for supplying the yarns to make these blankets. I wholeheartedly recommend Valley Yarns Superwash yarns for their softness, strength, and usability!

Many thanks to Aimee for knitting the sample worsted weight blanket!
