Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern- Try Using Baby Soft Yarn

Baby Yarn Doesn’t Have To Be Only For Babies

It occurred to me one of the reasons I love knitting for babies is the yarn. I mean really have you thought about this? It is soooooooo soft and squishy, hold it next to your cheek and you feel calm and gentle and you think babies. So what am I saying here, we all know baby yarn is great. Well here it is, wait for it…

Baby yarn should be used for us adults too!!

Yes! I mean it. What stops us from using this incredible yarn for some little something for ourselves? Oh I am not suggesting you use it to knit an ensemble. We know that it would take dozens of balls of yarn to make an adult outfit. But it would not take too much to make a scarf, can you imagine that up against your neck and face on a cold wintry day? I can.

So I had to try it. A few posts ago, I told you about that phenomenal deal I got on some fabulous baby yarn on my day trip. It was fantastic! But I didn’t really have a plan for the yarn. I’m sure you have done that yourselves. You see a beautiful color, or wonderful texture and you impulse buy it or the contingency plan that you will, of course, have an opportunity to use it eventually.

So I decided to use it for me. I made one of those little neck kerchiefs that really hug your face, one tail of the scarf slides into a loop on the other end and it snugs up to your chin. I love it. And it is so SOFT!

What can I say? It was brilliant. I had so much fun. Hey I like knitting for me too. I sure you do too. Try some baby yarn next time.

Try this pattern, it is so elegant and beautiful. And when you use baby yarn it is to die for. So nice because you can make it any size you like. Based on how much yarn you have and how much energy you want to expend.

The pattern is in multiples of 10, so just cast on how ever many you want for the width of your choice. Use any size needle you want, realizing that a larger needle is going to take more yarn. Enjoy.

CO a multiple of 10 sts.

  1. I love your blog, and you are so right with what you say, I love the soft feel of the yarn you use for baby knitting. My mother is or was into knitting in a big way, but we live in such a hot climate now that she doesn’t do it much anymore. She also used to knit dolls clothes for my baby doll many many years ago, I wonder if she will do that again for her grand daughter?
    I would love to learn how to knit and follow a pattern, I can do the basic knitting stitch but that is all. I will have to read some more of your blog, I really love it :) Oh and I will be bookmarking it too, I really like it :)

  2. I am always searching online for articles that can help me. A friend emailed me a link to your blog. He said, “Hey check this blog out, it sounds just like you”, and wow was he ever right. If I didn’t know better I could have sworn I’d written some of these posts myself. Thanks for making me smile today.
