This is a gorgeous baby blanket, with simple knit stitches that bend around the purl sections to create an effect that looks like circles dancing across the blanket.
Suitable for beginners, or those looking for an easy, meditative knit, the blanket feels both cosy but not heavy. The cashmere in the yarn makes it super soft, yet machine washable. This blanket can be made with great effect in most DK and Sport weight yarns.
