Filigree Lace-edged Baby Blanket

HeartStrings knitting pattern #H55

Knit a special blanket for a special baby that is impressive, yet practical. The Filigree Lace-edged Baby Blanket combines a pleasingly reversible Filigree lace stitch around the edges with a cushiony garter stitch center for cuddly warmth. This predominantly solid-fabric blanket is great for those who want a bit of lace, yet are concerned about holes in which baby could get their fingers caught.

Filigree Lace-edged Baby Blanket close-up

Start with just a bit of lacy pattern knitted circularly to dress up the outer edges of this utilitarian beauty. Then the center is knitted back and forth in garter stitch on the diagonal, forming a square to fill in the center of the baby blanket while attaching itself to the edging at the same time. No seams to sew!

I used a softly variegated yarn to play up the zigzag movement in the bias lace pattern along the edges, offset by the diagonally-knitted center. Of course, the blanket would be equally lovely in a solid color if you prefer a more classic, less casual look. The blanket shownwas was knitted in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport, color Layette. The one to the right is Henry's Attic Cassino II.
