Albert's Blankie knitting pattern by Allison O'Mahony


Albert’s Blankie is a rectangular, garter stitch baby blanket. The understated eyelet pattern provides just enough interest without being overly complicated, and makes the blanket a great, neutral choice for any baby. Worked in a soft, superwash wool for both warmth and ease of care, Albert’s Blankie is a great size for cribs, bassinets, and strollers.

Albert’s Blankie is knit diagonally from corner to corner and finished with a subtle chevron border.

I think using the Lopi yarn would’ve made these even prettier- but even with different wool, they turned out nicely. They are thick, seem warm, and the lining is a nice touch! Recipient is very pleased.

Very squishy mitts, the stitch pattern prevented pooling on an old skein of hand dyed I was looking to use up

These are absolutely beautiful and warm mittens that I am looking forward to knitting so that I can sail through this coming winter. The instructions look clear and well written too. Thank you from Barb in Canada.
