Super Easy Crib Blanket
Get all the yarn you need with our Super Soft Merino Super Easy Crib Blanket kits, available in six beauitufl colorways. Each kit includes...
- 7 skeins of Super Soft Merino, 100% merino wool. The palette shown above is Macaron, which includes (from the top) Timeless Navy, Peacock Blue, Desert Blue, Oyster Grey, Heirloom White, Yellow Yellow, and Super Pink.
- A US #13, 32-inch circular needle
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.
