Four converging points, three stitches to the inch, two knitting needles, and one seam, our Four Points Baby Blanket is a math game and a very clever knit!

Four Points Baby Blanket in Super Soft Merino | Purl Soho

Based on our original Knit Four Points Baby Blanket in Linen Quill, this new version is in 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!

For all the joy this beautiful little blanket brings, it is dead easy to make. Like its predecessor, the four points are achieved by knitting a simple triangle, picking up along one side, knitting another and so on, until you have a square. The best part? There’s only one seam to finish it off!
