To wrap a baby

My friend R became a mother! Of course I love to bring her baby boy something when I'll go to see him. This little man needs warmth, being just out of a warm belly, I thought. So this knit was made, inspired by this knitting on the bias. The used yarn is as pure as possible, as if straight from the sheep.

The cotton yarn you saw before. It was just added randomly like I saw here some time ago and still love. I used needle EU 8 and 500 gr of yarn. The pattern is so easy and great to do, as if climbing and descending a mountain.
Do you want to try this blanket of about 80 to 80 cm yourself?

Then cast on 1 st
row 1: kfb
kfb, k till the end
When you're halfway:
k2tog, k till the end
last row: 1 st, bind off.
Done! Simple as that.

Hi, This is lovely. I've just knit a friend's newborn a chunky moss stitch blanket from a Drops design using Polaris - lovely soft 100% wool also. But I love your bias knit, and the drifting colours, might have to hunt out some eskimo too!
