Baby blanket with stars
A hand knitted baby blanket is one of the best baby shower gifts a knitter could give! This baby blanket is available in 2 sizes: 75 x 100 cm (30 x 40 inch) and 75 x 80 cm (30 x 32 inch). This knitting pattern is available in English!
It consists of alternating strips of double moss stitch and strips with 4 stars made by knitting bobbles. Size 75 x 100 cm / 30 x 40 inch has 4 rows of 4 stars. Size 75 x 80 cm / 30 x 32 inch has 3 rows of 4 stars.
Level: intermediate (the stitches are easy except for the bobble stitch; if you have never knitted this bobble stitch, I recommend practicing the bobble before starting the blanket, because it is important that this bobble is knitted as tightly as possible for the best result.)
