Why should winter babies have all the fun?? The Summer Dreams Baby Blanket pattern is the warm weather answer to my popular Dreamy Baby Cakes Blanket which features a unique, “on the bias” construction (AKA corner-to-corner) and shifting stitch patterns that give both these blankets modern interest, texture and dimension.
In the Summer Dreams Baby Blanket pattern, I also included a super simple lace pattern. If you’re intimidated by lace, you can check out my helpful (and free) video tutorial for this lace pattern to see just how do-able it is for even beginner knitters.
The finished size of the baby blanket pictured is about 26in wide x 36in long (65cm x 92cm) as written but instructions for altering the blanket to any size are included in the pattern. Since you grow this blanket from corner to corner, the size and shape possibilities are endless!
This pattern calls for category 3, DK weight yarn and 4mm knitting needles long enough to accommodate 118 stitches. Knowledge of basic knit stitches as well as increases and decreases are helpful for this pattern.
