Candy Cane Baby Blanket

I recently fell in love in Sirdar Pattercake yarn cakes. When I saw Candy Cane, I knew I had to make a baby blanket out of it. The yarn cake even comes with simple pattern on the back of the band. I decided to try this out.

The pattern was very easy to follow. Blanket is made from corner to corner by adding and then decreasing stitches on each side of the blanket. It has nice thick texture as it’s made with garter stitch. I have decided to add a little bit of crochet edging as I can’t live without finishing blankets with crab stitch.

I am totally in love with the colors of Candy Cane. The bonus is that it is self-striping yarn so you only need to buy one ball!

What do you think of my Candy Cane Baby Blanket?

When it comes to yarns, anything I can put my hands on will finally make a way to my hooks and needles. I like to experiment a lot and notoriously run four or five projects at the same time - but that's part of the fun!

    1. Hi, please accept my apologies for late reply – Christmas got to me 🙂 I used Sirdar Snuggly Pattercake yarn and it comes with the pattern on the back of the band.
      Blanket is worked corner to corner. Before you begin, weigh your yarn and note that down.
      Start by casting on 3 stiches, knit two rows.
      Row 3: slip 1 stich, knit 1, make 1, knit until the end of row.
      Repeat that row increasing 1 stitch at the start of each row until you have half of the yarn remaining and then follow below:
      Slip 1, knit 1, knit 2 together, knit until the end of the row.
      Keep decreasing at the start of each row until you have last 3 stiches remaining. Knit all three and then cast off.
      This is not how the pattern was worded but a method that I remember – I threw out the band long time ago.
      After you cast off, the pattern called simply for weaving in the ends.
      I like to add nice crocheted border to my blankets – this one was done by crocheting double crochets all around the edge and then working in crab stitch.
      Please let me know how is it going for you 🙂
