We've re-conceived the Purl Bee's classic Super Easy Blanket in Purl Soho's sumptuous Super Soft Merino! This Super Easy Crib Blanket borrows the simple striping from the baby-sized original, but at 2 3/4 stitches to the inch, it knits up bigger and faster. With voluminous stitches and luxurious loft, this blanket is as soft and gentle as a cloud!
Update: October 2014
Twelve new colors in our Purl Soho yarn palette inspired us to create nine new Super Easy Crib Blankets in Super Soft Merino! Read all about them here and browse our expanded collection of Yarn for Super Easy Crib Blanket in Super Soft Merino kits right here!
- 7 skeins of Purl Soho's Super Soft Merino, 100% merino wool. The six colorways shown above are...
- Top Row: Macaron, Atmosphere and Pennant
- Bottom Row: Firefly, Cameo and Bandana
You'll also need...
- A US #13, 24 or 32-inch circular needle
2 3/4 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch
Approximately 30 inches x 32 inches
To get a nice, neat edge just slip the first stitch of every row knitwise with the yarn in back. (When you change colors, knit the first stitch of the row.)
With the first color, cast on 82 stitches.
Knit every row until you have used the entire skein (or until there are 11 or 12 garter stitch "ridges" [1 ridge = 2 rows]).
Switch to the second color and knit every row, using up the entire skein.
Repeat with each color, making sure to always switch colors on the same side.
After knitting all but a couple of yards of the seventh color, loosely bind off.
Weave in the ends and you're done!
