What's On Our Needles


Pattern: Lehtipeitonalla by Anja Tanninen 

Yarn: DK Merino Superwash by Plymouth

This sweet fox baby blanket will make a great gift and you will get to learn an interesting new knitting technique.... or two or three.


Blanket is knitted seamlessly using the domino knitting technique, worked row by row from right to left. Intarsia is used in some of the pieces. Ears are knitted separately and sewn on. Eyes and noses are embroidered.
