The Caela Baby Blanket is worked in a soft cotton yarn, which is perfect for Spring babies. It features a simple yet stunning stitch which is easy to work so you will soon have a blanket ready for the new arrival.
Work the small size for their first Moses basket or a larger blanket to keep them comfy on their morning walks. Then when they start to crawl or sit up a little, a large square size will be perfect as a playmat or in their playpen. Make a matching dolly or teddy blanket so baby's elder brother or sister can tuck their favourite friend into their basket too!
The stitch pattern has a wonderful cellular texture to trap the air and give a perfect degree of warmth for an extra Spring-time layer.
