Our Chevron Baby Blanket in Super Soft Merino takes its cue from our very popular original, but rather than two strands of cotton, this one uses a single strand of Purl Soho's sumptuous Super Soft Merino. We also changed up the striping, playing this time with whimsical irregularity. The result is a dense and toasty blanket, with a whole lot of personality, perfect for floor or stroller time!

Materials

  • 3 skeins of Purl Soho's Super Soft Merino for the Main Color. I used Heirloom White.
  • 1 skein of each of the four Contrast Colors. I used Purl Soho's Super Soft Merino in Toasted Charcoal for CC 1, Desert Blue for CC 2, Oyster Gray for CC 3 and Yellow Yellow for CC 4.
  • A US #11, 24 or 32-inch circular needle.
