The one-year old little boy who modeled our very first Super Easy Baby Blanket is now a thriving eighth grader. My, how time flies, but the enduring appeal of this knit remains just the same!

The concept is simple: garter stitch in seven stripes, one skein each. But somehow the sum of those parts is something quite wonderful, a lofty, squishy, and colorful tale!

The occasion for revisiting this classic knit is nothing less than a brand new member of our yarn family. Please welcome Morning! Morning is an unusual blend of 75% organically grown cotton and 25% yak. A light worsted gauge, it has a satisfying weight, a very soft feel, and an incredibly lovely hand. Oh, and it’s machine washable!

Choose from three, each available in a Super Easy Baby Blanket Bundle that comes in a Purl Soho tote bag with the pattern printed right on it.

With Color A, cast on 150 stitches. We used a basic Long-Tail Cast On.

Row 1: Slip 1 knitwise with yarn in back, knit to end of row.

Repeat Row 1 until you have used as much of Color A as you can (approximately 5¼ inches from cast-on edge).

*Next Row: With Color B, knit to end of row.

Continuing with Color B, repeat Row 1 until you have used as much of Color B as you can, ending on the same side you ended Color A.

Repeat from * with Colors C-G, making sure to always switch colors on the same side. For Color G, end with a couple yards left over for binding off.

With Color G, loosely bind off knitwise.

Weave in the ends and you’re done. Super easy!
