We love receiving your questions and comments, and for this project, took special notice of your requests for a knit version of our Crochet Four Points Baby Blanket.

The conversion was as smooth as can be. Borrowing a neat trick from Joelle’s book, More Last Minute Knitted Gifts (specifically the smart no-sewing way she connects the triangles in her Entrelac Baby Blanket), our Knit Four Points Baby Blanket is even more straightforward than the original!

Still in Linen Quill, our soft, lightweight blend of fine highland wool, alpaca, and linen, we’ve added Wild Radish to the choice of palettes. It’s crisp and fresh, soothing and happy, just right for babies and adults.

Update: February 2018

We’ve updated the gauge for this pattern to suit our thick and squishy Super Soft Merino! It’s an ideal weight to bundle up baby for a bracing stroller ride or to plop her down for some play time on the floor… Not that those over the age of two are prohibited from cuddling up in this wonderfully cozy blanket! In nine intriguing color combinations, the Four Points Baby Blanket in Super Soft Merino is a fun math game and a very clever knit!

Update: October 2018

Our Four Points Baby Blanket has lived through several incarnations: the original crocheted version, then the original knit version, a knit Super Soft Merino adaptation (pictured above), and now another knit one in Linen Quill, this one dipping into our latest palette of rich and evocative colors. There are ten color stories to choose from, four oldies-but-goodies and six newcomers. All include just four skeins of our wonderfully interesting and beautiful Linen Quill and all will inspire a mood!
