The Grace Anne Baby Blanket pattern has been test-knitted, the charts and texts compared, and it is ready to go. The pattern is for knitting a baby blanket, but it is written so that it can be easily made wider or narrower, shorter or taller, by simply adding or eliminating sections as needed for your purpose — for example, you could make a lovely long stole with 3 sections wide and knitted for 72 inches. Or you could knit with worsted weight yarn for a larger bed-size cover. So many options.
Personally, I would recommend knitting with a solid color yarn, in order to better show off the textured, and probably a lighter color rather than darker.
I’m knitting from 2 cones of undyed Phydlbitz, and anticipate it requiring 2.25-2.50 pounds (i.e., 10 skeins), or about 4300 yards. if you use a sport weight, single strand, you would need about 2150 yards as a rough estimate.
The pattern includes both line-by-line text instructions, as well as a chart. EVERY line is both charted and included in the text instructions.
Every effort has been made to eliminate errors. However, if there are any errors reported during the first two weeks, everyone who has already purchased the pattern will automatically receive a correct version. It will include any addendum notes or suggestions made by knitters.
Grace Anne baby blanket
A lightly textured blanket with subtle cables and heirloom styling, this blanket was knitted with Phydlbitz Sock, two strands held together throughout, but you can use almost any fingering or sportweight yarn to suit your needs. The actual blanket is designed to be 36″ x 48″, but the pattern is written so that you can very easily adjust the width and length by adding or eliminating sections.
