Simnia Accessories includes the patterns for matching: blanket, hat, mitts & booties making this series of patterns ideal to create gifts for a new baby.
Each item in this set has a patterning reminiscent of sea shells. It is a repeat of six stitches and is easy to memorise. Each item is seamless for baby's comfort. The blanket is in several sizes with the larger sizes having the option of garter stripes (waves) running through the shells.
The blanket is knitted at a looser gauge (20sts/4") on larger 5mm (US8) needles to give a fluid free flowing fabric that knits up quickly.
Instructions are given for a single colour but if preferred the shells could be knitted in a contrast yarn as seen on the red and grey hat.
Main samples: Colour Adventures Yarn in Seafoam & Lavanda. Trio of hats: Colour Adventures yarn - Glacier, Lavenda, Sour Cherry & Rainy Day
