Building Blocks Reversible Baby Blanket is my first baby blanket. It was inspired by my best friends request..... which turned into a fun project and quite a pleasant diversion for me.
The pattern is completely reversible, utilizing knit & purl stitches to create the illusion of stacks of blocks. A timeless heirloom perfect for any young prince or princess.
I chose to knit it out of Cascade 220 Superwash Sport in the color Aran (color#817). Its 100% superwash merino wool and has 136 yards or 125 meters. Its comes in a 50 gram hank.
Overall its very nice to knit with, its so soft, but can be a little splitty if you're not careful. I will definitely use this yarn again on other projects.
The pattern is available on Ravelry or can be purchased at your local yarn store.
This project was originally requested in the color Blaze, which is a very very very bright orange. .
Since I have some time before baby's arrival and there is no rush..... I have an instant license, to start a new and different project. BUT.... Blazing Building Blocks is started and can be easily be picked back up.
Baby blankets and knitting with the 220 Superwash Sport yarn was so much fun, that another baby blanket sounds like the perfect double diversion. Maybe in pink.....sweet!
More later on Baby #2.
