Interesting fact... The greatest number of babies are born in the summer over any other time of year! What does that mean for us crafters? Lots and lots of baby showers! All new moms appreciate a hand-made gift, and Baby Blankie yarn is the perfect choice to make them one! Baby Blankie is a self-patterning yarn that comes with 695 yards on a 10.5 oz ball, enough to make a great baby blanket. The yarn is a super soft acrylic that is easy care for new parents, machine wash and tumble dry, with 11 vibrant colors and patterns to suit any nursery.
The suggested needle size for Baby Blankie is a size 8 (5.0 mm) with a gauge of 18 stitches and 21 rows to 4" using this size needle, or any size needle needed to obtain this gauge.
