Bitty Bulky Baby Blankets Kits


These are kits for the suggested colors for the Bitty Bulky Baby Blanket Patterns. Note: Kits do NOT contain the pattern! The five baby blanket designs in this 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 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 Designer Fairmount Fibers Design Team Finished Size 5 Blankets, ranging from 24" square to 28" square depending on the design Yarn Each blanket is knit in Franca: Kirby: Butterscotch, Post Box, Wellies, Starry Night / 1 skein each Joey: Camelot, Velvet, Miel, Mumbai / 1 skein each Rory: Violeta, Balloon, Duende, Esmeralda / 1 skein each Emory: Miel, Koi, Deep Sea, Midas / 1 skein each Toby: Tormenta, Menhir, Natural, Limon / 1 skein each Notions Tapestry needle Gauge 10 sts and 20 rows = 4” / 10cm in Garter Stitch Needle Size US13 / 9mm 36” circular needle, or size needed to obtain gauge or US 15 / 10mm 32” circular needle, or size needed to obtain gauge depending on the design
