Bitty Bulky Baby Blankets

The five baby blanket designs in this booklet have a lot in common: 

each uses 4 skeins of Manos del Uruguay Franca, 

all are worked in garter stitch, and any will keep a little one cozy!

The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Franca, a superbulky single-ply yarn made of 100% washable merino wool. 

It makes a plush, squishy fabric that knits up quickly on big needles. 

To keep the focus on the beautiful hand-dyed colors, we chose to knit the blankets without seaming or using more than one color at a time. 

Exciting structures are worked with simple techniques: although all of the blankets are square in shape, none is knit plain from cast-on to bind-off. 

Some are worked on the bias, others involve picking up stitches in modular knitting, while one explores a mitered construction.  

We wanted to create a collection that has you return time and time again to explore another construction in Franca. 

We hope you enjoy knitting a bitty bulky baby blanket (or two!) in Manos del Uruguay Franca
