A handmade baby heirloom is a beautiful way to bless a newborn into the world! So, today I wanted to share with you this beautiful Lacy Knit Baby Blanket by Yarnspirations.com. This Lacy Knit Baby Blanket is a new EASY pattern brought to us by Kristen Mangus of GoodKnit Kisses.
This Lacy Knit Baby Blanket is perfect for a newbie to knitting. It’s a great way to get your toes into a practical first project. The lovely pattern definition is both eye-catching and practical, to keep baby warm. It can also be made for an adult just by making it longer so why not make a matching one for the new mom.
Download the pattern and be on your way to creating this simple yet beautiful baby blanket. Using just one ball of Bernat Baby Sport which has a light #3weigth yarn in a budget-friendly big ball size, it would also be ideal to donate to a baby charity or hospital.
The tutorial video also demonstrates a number of skills that are necessary to learn in order to get started on your knitting journey. Kristen Mangus shows us how to make the Longtail Cast-on, Knit Stitch, Purl Stitch, Knit 2 Together, Knit Front Back, Slip Slip Knit, Yarn Over, Cast Off and Weave In Tails. The way she explains them makes it super easy to follow and learn them once and for all.
The yarn has also been certified and approved according to the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certification, making it even more safe to use with a baby product as it has been tested for over 300 harmful substances and marked as safe.
Another great thing about this particular type of yarn is that it is machine washable and can even go into the dryer! That is a plus for any new mom, right?
