Twinset Blankets – Free Knitting Pattern
Twins! Every little baby deserves a blanket they know as they’re own, clearly recognisable… but how cute to make something matchy not-matching for two little babies taking on life together. When a very special friend of mine found out she was having twins, my mind got racing with this is idea. Now these two little boys got land side very very early, and often twins are early, so the choice to make a blanket newborn sizes was a good one.
Very pleased to say that the little dudes in question are doing very well.
This is a great kit for the beginner adding skills, and knit corner to corner with eyelet decorations it is fun for all.
Blankies are around 53cm square (bigger if blocked) and enjoy a colour dipped corner to make them pair up.
