This adorable baby blanket is knit with doubled strands of Cascade Yarns Eco+ Peruvian wool yarn.
This yarn is soft enough for a baby and comes in huge hanks, so there's less ends to weave in!
The strawberry is worked in an easy-to-remember stitch pattern. The leaves are sewn on afterwards, and the white "seeds" are embroidered on last.
What baby wouldn't look even more precious lying under or on top of this blanket!
