Quick baby blanket

Postby Janek » Thu Jan 17, 2019 10:30 am

Hi there, has anyone used or seen a free pattern for a baby blanket using straight needles and chunky wool please? Most of the ones I have seen are with circular needles. I’m not an experienced knitter but just want a project I can do quickly. Thank you. Jane

Hi Janek

The problem with knitting a baby blanket in chunky with straight needles is you won't get needles long enough to make the blanket wide enough. It will work if you knit it in pieces - maybe something like this: https://www.premieryarns.com/products/p ... el-blanket which would work on straights even though it says use circulars. You could maybe crochet a simple border - or knit it and sew on after.
Actually patchwork blankets work really well for babies.

Hope that helps

Kate

Hi Kate, wow this looks great. I see what you mean about the length of the blanket and straight needles. I’ll give this a go. Thank you, Jane
