Linus was right, happiness really is a warm blanket, and our Double Seed Stitch Blanket in Cotton Pure really is happiness! Like a firm handshake or a tight bear-hug, there is something so satisfying about sleeping under the weight of a soft, beautiful cotton blanket.
Double Seed Stitch’s alternating knits and purls are simple, meditative, and reversible. We used the same stitch pattern for our original version of this blanket in Super Soft Merino (also wonderful), but this one in Cotton Pure is machine washable (hello, baby blankie!) and creates an even more delicate, nubbly texture, incredibly tactile and nice to touch!
To make either a large throw or 2 crib size blankets, you’ll need either 5 skeins or 10 skeins of our Cotton Pure. A classic throw or an heirloom blanket for baby, a Double Seed Stitch Blanket in Cotton Pure is all about sweet dreams!
To make one Throw size or two Crib size blankets, you’ll need…
- 1 Cotton Pure On A Cone, 100% Pima cotton. We used the color Freshwater Pearl.
- US 4, 32-, 40-, or 47-inch circular needles
PLEASE NOTE: Our Cotton Pure On A Cone is currently unavailable. If you want to make just one Crib Blanket, you’ll need 5 skeins of Purl Soho’s Cotton Pure. Or if you want to make the Throw, just pick 10 skeins!
