Pattern: Babe in the Mist

All my backlist patterns are receiving an upgrade this summer! First to receive a nip and tuck is my favorite New Baby gift: Babe in the Mist - a small blanket perfect for cribs, strollers, and car seats.

Babe in the Mist $7 on Ravelry (no account necessary)

Wrap your littlest buccaneer in a blanket of Mist Drops to keep baby safe from discovery, whether on board ship or tucked away on a desert island. Every edge of this cozy cover undulates so baby will become accustomed to the waves, and both sides of this pattern are beautiful, so no worries about which side is best. A washable wool blend makes this a practical, not-too-heavy, and easy-to-care for blanket for your babe.

What you'll love about knitting Babe in the Mist:
  • one stitch pattern (Mist Drops) that is interesting to work and which you will quickly master
  • increases and decreases create a lovely, rippling edge
  • blanket looks beautiful on both sides
  • Mist Drops is provided in both charted and written forms, so you can choose the version that works for you
  • quick to work up in worsted weight yarn
