Just finished knitting this Sprout Blanket for a dear friend’s little one (knitting pattern by Hanna Breetz).
As it turned out, I cast on only one hour before the baby was born, so I knitted like mad to finish before he starts high school (grin).
Love this pattern, really fun to knit. The chart & instructions are very clear, and the symmetrical nature of the design makes it easy TV knitting.
Because the recipient wanted easy, EASY care, I used machine washable & dryable Caron Simply Soft, one-and-a-half skeins (about 475 yds) in Pistachio.
I found the yarn just a wee bit splitty, but switching to blunt needle tips solved that problem. It really a soft, light yarn for baby gifts, and launders beautifully.
Would definitely knit Sprout again!
