Part two of ‘what would Alexa knit’ has to be the baby blanket edition. The nicest thing about baby blankets is that they don’t have to be knit in a certain size. There is no 0-6 months/6-12 months sizes for baby blankets. They really can’t be too big or too small because they just get used for different purposes. I prefer a blanket 26-30″ because that’s the idea carseat/stroller size, but bigger is just fine for putting down underneath a baby on the floor or the grass.
There are 3 great baby blankets from Brooklyn Tweed, I’ve knit 2 and I’ll be casting on for the 3rd shortly! First is the Tweed Baby Blanket. It has a classic hap-style construction with a large chunk of garter stitch in the middle and a lace edging.I used Rialto Aran (note, this is a thicker yarn than the pattern calls for)
Next is the wool leaves blanket. It’s a thicker weight blanket in a bulky yarn (or a worsted weight held doubled). I did mine in the Spud and Chloe Sweater held doubled.
Last but not least is Shale. I just love a cable, any time any place! I think a nice soft grey is in order because it just goes with everything and looks classic and well loved all at the same time!
