As Christmas in July with Brooklyn Tweed comes to an end (along with July itself), we state again how much we love baby knits. And we’re not the only ones … it seems like as soon as someone learns you’re a knitter, up pops a baby. Friends, kids, grandkids … babies are everywhere. And what’s better to wrap a new baby in than some scrunchy wool and gorgeous colors?
Brooklyn Tweed knows this, and has responded accordingly by designing the Tweed Baby Blanket.This blanket is another simple-and-brilliant design. The garter stitch center is knit on a bias, then the edges are picked up in the round to knit the feather-and-fan border. Pictured is the small version; the larger version has a three-color repeat around the border. Knit with Debbie Bliss Donegal Tweed Aran, it’s guaranteed to keep baby warm and snuggly when the weather turns crisp.
If you’re one of the few that doesn’t have a baby to knit for, this blanket can also work as a lap blanket for the elderly, or a simple small throw to have on the back of the sofa. Knit with earth tones or a combination like this one, it’s simple and striking design will go with anything and everything. It’s sure to become an heirloom piece, so why not pick up your needles and cast on today! Patterns and yarn are available at the shop.
