Pinneguri, who test knitted the Blomekrans vest, asked med a while ago if I could make a baby blanket pattern with the flowers, since she wanted to knit that. Hard to say no...!
Here's her finished blanket! Beautiful, isn't it?
The pattern has been available in Norwegian for a while,
but has now been translated to English.
27 sts and 33 rounds in 4 x 4 inches / 10 x 10 cm
(Gauge is not crucial for the result;
the blanket will be a little smaller or larger
if your gauge differs from the suggested.)
Wollmeise sock yarn, Shetland spindrift, J&S jumper weight,
Rauma Finullgarn or similar,
in three colours, one background colour,
one colour for the leaves and one for the flowers.
Circular needles 60 cm in a size
that gives you the right gauge in stranded colourwork.
A longer circular one size smaller for the edging (120 or 150 cm)
Small blanket: 28 x 27 inches / 71 x 69 cm
Medium sized blanket: 32 x 31 inches / 82 x 79 cm
Large blanket: 37 x 38 inches / 94 x 96 cm
The blanket is worked in the round, and edge stitches are picked up after cutting the steek. This is the largest version, so there's an awful lot of edge stitches... The edging is a modified version og this edging from the Purl Bee.
Thanks a lot, Pinneguri, for the idea and the test knitting!
And thanks for letting me use your photos.
