In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I share this Irish knit baby blanket.
When little a worked at an upscale Manhattan yarn shop, she had the opportunity to purchase this sumptuous yarn. Schulana merino-cotton 90. It’s a wool/cotton blend that works up beautifully! The pattern is called “For a Bonny Babe”, and is found in Our Best Knit Baby Afghans
by Leisure Arts.
The finished blanket measures 26″ x 32″. As I worked on it intermittently, I confess that it took me over a year to complete. Cable work can look a lot harder than it really is. I encourage those of you who can knit and purl to give it a try. Here’s a great video to get you started!
“May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks. May your heart be as light as a song. May each day bring you bright happy hours. That stay with you all the year long.”
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
