Baby blankets are perfect for cuddling, swaddling, napping, and security. They also make the perfect luxurious handmade gift. This video tutorial is of an heirloom vintage inspired baby blanket using the ripple puff stitch. I found this free written pattern online. I followed the pattern pretty close but I added a border around the entire piece. You can find the free pattern here.
This generously sized super soft cuddly blanket is perfect for any nursery layette and is sure to be a baby or toddler’s favorite. I used one skein of each color of Bernat Baby Coordinates yarn Iced Mint, White, Baby Pink, and Soft Blue. I’m in awe of how pretty this stitch turned out using these colors!
Follow along with this video to learn how to make this lovely baby blanket.
A handmade heirloom blanket is a gift that a child will cherish forever. It can be made in a medley of colors or one solid tone. This is adaptable to any type of yarn and you can go up in hook size as well.
Although the video tutorial shows how to make a baby blanket, you can apply the same technique and continue to expand the size by increasing the amount of chains. This pattern is in multiples of 18 (+2), and I explain in the video how to make it bigger.
This will add and elegant touch to any nursery.
