What’s Hot in the Shop

The hottest knit this summer has been the popular Pixelated Baby Blanket. Written by Chief Lovely, Sue Caldwell, this pattern is a simple Linen Stitch worked with just one skein each of three complementary colors creating a pixel effect.

Best of all, you don’t have to be an Advanced knitter. If you can knit and purl, you can master this pattern.

We recommend using Worsted weight cotton yarns such as Berroco Modern Cotton and Universal Yarn’s Cotton Supreme which are both Pima Cotton and HiKoo Cobasi Plus which is a wonderful blend of cotton, bamboo and silk. You can use a mix of these three yarns to increase your possible color combinations. These fibers are all easy care and machine washable.

No need for a baby blanket? This pattern and the recommended yarns are perfect for a table runner and placements. You can also easily enlarge the pattern and make a lightweight lap blanket.

Come in and take a look at our shop sample and feel the yummy softness of the fibers to find out why this has become one of our most popular Lovelyarns patterns.

If you’ve already knit this pattern, send us your photos and we’ll post them to our blog or Facebook page. We always love seeing what you Lovelies have worked up!

  1. Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout

    go over the same subjects? Thanks a ton!

      Thank you! There are thousands of blogs that cover the needlearts such as knitting and crocheting. Obviously, the first that stands out is the blog of the Knit Goddess herself, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (www.yarnharlot.ca). I can’t make it through a week without some Harlot! Definitely hop over there and give her a read.
