Make This Baby Blanket by Holding Two Strands Together at Once!
This blanket stitch baby blanket works by holding two strands of yarn together simultaneously. I love using this technique because it makes it work up fast and gives it an extra cozy touch. I also used this technique on this blanket stitch pattern too if you’d like to take a look.
You will be holding the pink and white yarn together for the entire blanket which I will explain more about below.
The Yarn That’s Perfect for a Baby Blanket
I used Lion Brand Baby Soft Yarn in Parfait, which is a 60% acrylic & 40% nylon blend. This yarn is incredibly soft & cozy, which means its perfect for swaddling a baby.
Also, it is available in some pretty fabulous colorways too! You’ll want to check them out the next time you are perusing the yarn aisle!
Do you want to use a different yarn?
You can find a ton of suggestions for thread online at places such as Amazon, or you take a peek inside your local craft store to find a suitable yarn too.
