I finished the round baby blanket last night. Hooray!

It’s about 30″ across; here’s a photo with a ruler in it for scale.

This is the sixth one of these blankets I’ve made, and I think it’s the best one so far. It took me exactly 35 days to finish; it would have been even quicker had I not stopped to make three other projects. You can find the free pattern over here. It took me about a half-skein of Lion Brand Pound of Love, but mileage will vary based on yarn weight and needle size.

In case you’re wondering how on earth a round blanket works with a baby, I took a few sample photos using our Terrify Me E1mo as a model. (Yes, the Peep still wants no part of him.)  TME is approximately 16 inches tall, obviously shorter than the average baby, but you’ll get the idea.

Place the baby on the blanket with his head at the top edge.

Fold the blanket up over the baby.

Fold the two sides in, and voila! A baby burrito!

    I love it too! I’m looking for another baby blanket pattern to start knitting for a friend of mine, and this one is perfect 🙂 Yours turned out great!
