News of a new arrival brings about a flurry of activity. In reality there is very little a newborn needs other than warmth and love and what better way to show that you care than to hand-knit a beautiful baby blanket. From the first car journey to an outing in a buggy, a knitted blanket will accompany baby wherever they go. Laura Strutt has designed a teddy bear travel blanket that cleverly folds away into a pillow and a hooded wrap for keeping cozy in a sling. For the nursery there is a soft cot cover and a dungaree-style sleeping bag in breathable merino wool perfect for a peaceful night’s rest. For playtime, there’s a cotton-backed blanket that can double up as a rug to take out and about and a tiny comforter blanket guaranteed to become baby’s closest companion. With stunning yarns, simple techniques and gorgeous designs there’s sure to be a blanket here that will be treasured for years to come.
