SWEETHEART BABY BLANKET




This striking baby blanket is knit in Cascade 220 wool yarn.

The center panel is knit in the round in 2 or 3 colors with a steek, or knit back and forth - your choice. The depth of color interest comes from duplicate stitching 2 of the colors throughout the piece. Garter stitch edges frame the heart graphic.

It's not a quick project, but the result is worth it, and a lovely heirloom for that very special baby!
