“Baby Valentine by Lisa Granick”
A garter intarsia baby blanket - a truly heartfelt gift for a new baby in your life! The garter fabric is squishy and warm. The heart graphic is framed by edging that includes simple lace and a Latvian braid. The stripes give a motivating sense of progress as you work.

The intarsia and braid techniques are easier than you think and are explained in detail with accompanying charts and pictures.

In Silky Wool this is a generously sized baby blanket 35 x 41 inches.

3 skeins of each of the main colors, plus at least 3 contrast colors are sufficient to complete the project (total weight of contrast colors used 1.5 skeins), but I used leftovers from other projects and so added many colors.
