News of a new arrival always brings about a flurry of activity. Show your love and devotion by hand-knitting a beautiful baby blanket they can cherish.
From the first car journey to an outing in a stroller, a knitted blanket will accompany a baby wherever they go. Laura Strutt has designed a teddy bear travel blanket that cleverly folds away into a pillow and a hooded wrap for keeping cozy in a sling. For the nursery there is a soft cot cover and a dungaree-style sleeping bag in breathable merino wool—perfect for a peaceful night’s rest. For playtime, there’s a cotton-backed blanket that can double up as a rug to take out and about, and a tiny comforter blanket guaranteed to become their closest companion. With beautiful yarns, simple techniques, and stunning designs, there is a blanket here ready for you to make and for the new arrival to treasure for years to come.
