Pinwheel Blanket!

So in celebration of my nephew being born I am releasing my latest pattern!

You guys voted for baby items and this is the first of a few! (oooh hey now I can use all that blue yarn I have!! woo hoo!)

When that vote came in I was pretty happy, it was good timing, and kinda has kicked me into gear to get some things done!

So I give you:

The Pinwheel Blanket!

The pinwheel!

Knit up this cozy and unusual recieving blanket for the newest little one in your family. It’s sure to take its place among the special and cherished textiles in your collection.

Use the pattern on a larger loom and knit yourself up a rag rug! Or knit it up on a smaller gauge loom and make a hot pad or placemat. This versitile pattern is a great way to stretch your skills and knit in new directions!
