Introducing my latest pattern: Mhara Baby Blanket! Mhara means “sea” in Gaelic.
Pattern: Mhara Baby Blanket
Designer: Rachel Henry (that’s me!)
Available: for $1.99 through Knit Picks IDP or $2.50 on Ravelry
Yarn: Knit Picks Brava Bulky in Tranquil
Design/Skills Needed: This fully reversible baby blanket is worked on the bias in garter stitch. Step-wise increases and decreases are embellished as you go with crocheted waves. Explicit directions for stroller- and crib-sized blankets are given, but the pattern is easily adapted for larger or smaller blankets. This pattern includes complete photo tutorials for the step-wise increases and the crocheted embellishment. For ease of printing, these tutorials appear at the end of the pattern. Experienced knitters may print just page 2 for complete pattern with no extraneous photos or information.
Familiarity with crocheting is helpful, but not necessary. Almost any yarn will work with this pattern, provided you use appropriately-sized needles.
