The Colour Block Knitted Baby Blanket – Ta Da!!

Colour Block Knit Blanket for Beginners using @Scheepjes Sunkissed by MissNerissTa Da!!!!!

I seriously can’t believe that I can knit.  I just knitted a baby blanket!  And she’s a beauty.

Colour Block Knit Blanket for Beginners using @Scheepjes Sunkissed by MissNerissI used Scheepjes Sunkissed for this project in colours 3, 7, 9 and 10. (There are currently 11 colours available, but don’t be surprised if you see more coming soon!)

I can’t tell you how much I love working with this yarn. I love the texture of the cotton, I love the colourways, I love the drape.  For me it’s about as close to the perfect yarn as you can get.  Knitters, you’re going to make some beautiful clothes with this yarn, let me forewarn you.

The finished blanket, at 60x85cm is just the perfect size for a cradle or buggy, and it’s exactly the right weight for this ridiculously cool summer that we’re “enjoying” here in Holland right now.

  2. It looks lovely! I look forward to seeing the yarn. Many cottons are not great for garment knitting!

    • Thank you! The yarn is so lovely, really a great garment yarn if you can believe it. I did use half a needle size larger than recommended (because I’m a tight knitter), but it’s not too loose, just perfect. Definitely get your hands on some if you can!
