It's always fun knitting for autumn babies. You can steer away from the traditional pinks and blues and make items in beautiful Fall shades of amber and orange instead - perfect for their first ever "Pumpkin Day".
The Winsford Stroller Blanket works up quickly and is completely reversible. There is a small-sized blanket for a stroller or push-chair, and a larger size to fit a toddler bed.
The Stroller size is a square design which makes it easy to quickly put over baby's legs when out and about. It can also double as a playmat when you arrive at Grandma's house. The Toddler bed size is a few inches wider and a little longer, so will keep your little one cozy and warm in the evenings.
Both feature soft rounded corners and a wonderful interplay of colors to give a lot of interest to the final item.
