Baby Bunting

Bye, Baby Bunting,
Father’s gone a-hunting,
Mother’s gone a-milking,
Sister’s gone a-silking,
Brother’s gone to buy a skin
To wrap the Baby Bunting in.

This is what I've been working on for months and months. It's sweet and simple, pretty yet practical. And I am very pleased with how it turned out.

The Baby Bunting cot blanket is based on a traditional log cabin quilt square, with an applied I-cord border and a turned-down top lace section with knitted on lace edgings. The lace just adds to the vintage charm of this rustic and traditional blanket.

The main blanket is worked seamlessly in garter stitch, using picked up stitches from the centre block outwards, allowing the project to be easily up-sized. The lace turn-down and edging are knit onto live stitches.

Combining the simplicity of garter stitch and an interesting seamless construction, the Baby Bunting Blanket proves the point that the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts.

Pattern available ETA May 10th 2013.  

Wish me luck!
