A lovely easy knitting pattern for a chunky blanket. Ideal for a beginner knitter and perfect for showing your baby how much you love them.
This pattern features a repeating double-heart and moss stitch design. It is perfect for baby’s first blanket to keep snug in a pram, moses basket, bouncy chair or carrycot. The pattern also includes instructions to make larger blankets for cots, beds and throws.
The minimum blanket size is 87cm x 87cm (34” x 34”).
This pattern is illustrated, written out (rather than a chart) and is very easy to knit.
This blanket is ideal beginner knitters and if knitted with cotton yarn it also makes a very special alternative to the popular waffle blanket.

Lindsay @ Sproglets Kits
The idea for Sproglets Kits was born in the hot summer of 2014 in Weston village, which overlooks the beautiful Cotswold hills and the world heritage city of Bath. I was 8 months pregnant, huge and waiting for baby to arrive. With my mum and grandmother having both enthusiastically togged out their babies in lovely hand-knitted clothes, I wanted to keep up the family tradition and make something for the baby whom I had yet to meet. I continued to knit as baby grew up and I was always immensely proud when she looked cosy in something I had made her. People often asked me how they could make something similar and I decided to put together everything I had learned into accessible knitting kits and patterns which would enable others to make beautiful things for their babies.
The design of my patterns incorporates my 20 years’ experience of making arts and culture accessible to all. The instructions are illustrated at key stages and have been tested to be easily read by dyslexics.
