Stroller or car-seat blanket - knitting pattern
This blanket was designed for strollers car-seats (but please check your local laws), and has two slots for the straps and buckle. Made with big loose cables, it will keep any child covered up, therefore cozy and warm! It is long enough to keep up with your growing toddler (see photo), especially as the top portion may be unbuttoned and unfolded to give maximum warmth for little chests and shoulders. The yarn used is soft and light, yet will keep your little one nice and toasty. Bardan (pronounced Bar-dawn) is an Irish name which means “from the poet’s valley”.
Suitable for intermediate knitters. There are five pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs.
Worsted yarn was used for the pictured garment, you don't need to use the yarn specified as long as you make sure that you check the gauge.

I learned to knit as a child living in both Ireland and England. I love the intricate work of aran garments, but it was only when my first grandchild came along that I began to design for babies and children - for her first child my daughter had wanted a tiny sweater with a particular aran stitch on the front, I couldn't find a pattern so decided to make one up!
