Simple and soft, textured and inviting: the best blankets for babies are the ones that will be used and re-used, as enjoyable for you to make as they are for your little ones to cuddle up under.

We designed our Cozy Corners Crib Blanket in the softest worsted weight cotton we could get our hands on: Blue Sky’s Worsted Cotton. The calming, slightly off-white color, Drift, will be sure to have your babies soon drifting off to sleep. And maybe even your babies’ babies.

Materials

Cozy Corners Crib Blanket | Purl Soho

  • 6-7 skeins of Blue Sky’s Worsted Cotton, 100% cotton. We used the color Drift. (NOTE: I used six skeins, but some readers have reported needing a seventh. If your motto is better-safe-than-sorry, buy seven but only wind six. If you don’t end up needing the last one, you can exchange it within six months of purchase. Read our entire Return Policy to make sure!)
  • US 9, 32-inch circular needles

Gauge

16 stitches and 20 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

Size

31 inches wide x 43 inches long

Notes

Slip all slip stitches purlwise, as if to purl.

yo in reverse [yarn over in reverse]: To “yarn over in reverse,” bring the yarn from the back, over the right needle to the front, and between the needles to the back. (Note that if the stitch after the yo in reverse were a purl, you would not bring the yarn between the needles to the back. In this pattern the next stitch is always a knit stitch and so, you do!)

yo in reverse, k2, pass yo over [yarn over in reverse, knit 2, pass yarn over over]: Yarn over in reverse, knit 2, pass the yo over the two knit stitches and off the right needle.
