Chevron Stitch Baby Blanket

 
 
 
 
The Chevron Baby Blanket is a simple yet effective pattern. We have knit the baby blanket in The Woven Smooth Merino, colours Mist and Frost. By using just two soft shades, we have created a more muted and minimal look. 
The Chevron Baby Blanket is a wonderful pattern for adventurous beginners as it  is a simple combination of knit, purl,  increasing and decreasing.

Smooth Merino in Blossom and Mist

 
 
Heavy Merino in Hunter’s Green and Dusty Artichoke
