Blomekrans Blanket

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.


Pattern details 

Gauge 
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.) 

Yarn suggestion 
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. 

Needles 
Circular needles 60[80] 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) 

 Sizes 
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.
