The Sunflower Baby Blanket is the second in a series of blankets I will create, one for each season. Yup, you guessed it, this one is for summer 🙂
I designed this particular blanket for one of my (9!) nephews. Henry is just one year old and has a sunny personality and dimples that would make anyone smile. So this blanket was designed to embody Henry’s bubbly and cheeky personality.
With so many nephews (and only one niece) I also tend to make a lot of unisex items. So unlike the Spring Fields Baby Blanket, this is a unisex colourway and design.
I used the Rico Creative Cotton for a lighter summer blanket, but it did mean I had to manage the colour change myself. One of the cool things about the Caron Cakes is that you get super fun colourways without the hassle of changing colours yourself, and with almost no ends to weave in. The newly released Caron Cotton Cakes also look amazing and would have solved this problem. Unfortunately they weren’t yet available when I was designing this pattern, otherwise I definitely would have used them!
The Sunflower Baby Blanket is currently being tested by some amazing ladies. They are coming up with super innovative and fun colour combinations, and I love seeing their blankets grow!
Some of the testers are on Instagram, so check them out:
If you want to keep up to date with how their blankets are getting on, you can also check out the Instagram hashtag #sunflowerbabyblanket.
I hope this pattern will be released by the end of August. But at any rate, I’ll keep you in the loop!
