You'll love these quick-to-knit, Bitty Bulky Baby Blankets! The five baby blanket designs in this e-booklet have a lot in common:

  • each uses 4 skeins of Manos del Uruguay Franca,
  • all are worked in garter stitch, and any will keep a little one cozy!

The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Franca, a very soft, superbulky, single-ply yarn made of 100% washable merino wool.

It makes a plush, squishy fabric that knits up quickly on big needles.

To keep the focus on the beautiful hand-dyed colors, they chose to knit the blankets without seaming or using more than one color at a time.

Exciting structures are worked with simple techniques: although all of the blankets are square in shape, none is knit plain from cast-on to bind-off.

Some are worked on the bias, others involve picking up stitches in modular knitting, while one explores a mitered construction.  

They have created a collection that has you return time and time again to explore another construction in Franca.

We hope you enjoy knitting a bitty bulky baby blanket (or two!) in Manos del Uruguay Franca
