Garter Blocks Baby Blanket: Cashmerino 5-Color Project

"Bright and wee patchwork."

Perfect in any baby's room—whether modern, retro, romantic or eclectic—this wee patchwork 'blankie' will always be a beloved gift. It's simply knit in garter stitch strips (totally beginner-worthy!) so it's an easy project to tote along and straightforward to assemble. In cushy, machine washable Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, this is the blanket that Mom will reach for and baby will adore. A cozy 25" square also makes a lovely lap blanket for any age!

Grab the pattern below and travel on over to the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran page to choose your colors -- you'll need two balls each of five baby-liscious shades. 

Approx. 25 x 25"/63 x 63cm.

10 skeins (2 each of 5 colors) Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran (55% merino wool, 33% microfibre, 12% cashmere; 50g, 98 yds/90m each).

US 8 (5mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge.

Approx. 18 sts = 4"/10cm in garter stitch.

These tips are included in the pattern - but just to be extra sure, use long-tail cast on method for these garter strips. Starting this way prevents any 'stockinette ridge' that you can get with other cast ons. Also, keep those tails in place until after seaming is finished.
