This sweet blanket is cast-on in the center and knit outward in a simple yet elegant lace pattern. It's perfect for a baby blanket or curling up on the couch with a book... or knitting. ;) The example shown is knit in Modern Cotton from Berroco, but Pima 100 is also recommended and dare we say we like it even better!
We think the softness and washability of Pima 100 make it perfect for gifts. People experience the soft-to-itchy spectrum of animal fibers in all different ways, plus if you're not sure whether the recipient may be vegan it can't hurt to play it safe. This soft-to-everyone 100% cotton yarn avoids those potential pitfalls altogether!
The blanket shown is in Berroco Modern Cotton (a cotton/synthetic blend), colorway 1621 Warbler. We've created this kit with Berroco Pima 100 and recommend the colorway 8420 Sea Holly as a good alternative if you've fallen in love with the sample color. Don't see your favorite color here?

yarn comes unwound in the original hank unless you add winding above*
*Hanks of Pima 100 must be wound prior to knitting with them. However, plant fibers do not ship well once wound into a ball - the ball can fall apart and tangle en route. As such, we recommend waiting to wind this yarn at home just before you work with it. That said, we have found that this particular cotton does better than some others and arrives intact MOST of the time. So you can add winding to your order for this yarn if you are willing to risk a possible tangle! :)
kit will be packaged in a Twisted logo cotton drawstring bag (subject to availability)
For orders of multiple skeins, we will select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
