Loop's Yaku Blanket Kit
More are being made this February
This was originally designed for the HVERDAGSULD yarn, but we thought it might be nicer for babies in the yummy Yaku yarn.
So, Trine of CaMaRose tweaked the pattern and created this for us!
CaMaRose yarns are OEKO TEX standard 100 certified. This certification is a guarantee that the yarns have been tested and do not contain any harmful chemicals.
Trine Bertelsen and Loop have put together this fabulous kit with 6 -9 colours using CaMaRose Yaku a super-soft and superwash merino in a 4 ply weight. This gorgeous blanket looks complicated but it's not at all!
It starts with a simple pattern that is completely reversible and also machine washable at 30 degrees.
Two sizes of the blanket are included in this pattern, Baby and Junior Sizes.

** Errata - Misprint on page 2 of the pattern.
Pattern reads 'Blanket: Cast on 183 (243) sts on a size 4mm circular needle using col 1. Change to a size 4mm needle and knit 1 row.'
Pattern should read 'Change to size 3mm needle and knit 1 row.'
