This baby blanket incorporates a traditional Estonian stitch pattern and edging. The lovely stitch pattern used for the main part is a flower like stitch that utilises the Estonian star stitch technique as a base for the petals.

Around 1096 yards of sportweight yarn is required for the blanket which is knitted on 4.5mm needles. The blanket in the photo was knitted with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino which, as well as having a lovely drape, is beautifully soft. Size after washing and blocking when worked to gauge is 30" x 40".

The construction involves first knitting the edging, followed by the main part which is then placed on a spare needle whilst the other end of the edging is knitted. The two pieces are then grafted together. Both the top and bottom edgings are provisionally cast on and later cast off using a lace cast off to ensure a neat, even and stretchy finish for blocking.

If preferred, a plain garter stitch edging can be used instead in which case a few rows garter stitch would be knitted before and after the main stitch pattern and no grafting or provisional cast on would be required.

Once Paypal payment has cleared, the PDF will be sent by me to the buyer's email address provided by Etsy. Please bear in mind, though, that I'm in the UK, so if you're in the US, say, I may be in bed when you order!
