So much fun to knit and designed to use up every last yard of this sensationally cosy yarn, this blanket is a must-have treasure for every new baby and toddler. I chose to knit this in a classic natural cream color, but the shade card of this yarn is pretty and the design would work equally well in baby pastels or a more serviceable earth tone for the toddler car seat requirement.
With a price average of $1 to $5 a pop, the men's cashmere sweater section in a thrift shop is a goldmine! Not only are these great to wear as-is, but these once pricey luxury pieces are perfect for upcycling into new items LIKE THIS BLANKET! Gorgeous! (From Disfunctional Designs blog...)
