Some Spring Charity Knits

I had a large skein of Loops and Threads Snuggly Wuggly brand baby yarn and decided to make up a set for charity giving. I really like that yarn – it is a #3 yarn and is relatively inexpensive Michael’s brand. The blanket is from Diana Sullivan’s Best Baby Blankets book. It utilizes the Long Stitch for the ribbing and the sides of the blanket so that the sides do not roll – but the middle is plain stockinet. It knits up so quickly – a plus for charity work. The bit of patterning in the blanket is just from the speckled yarn. I wrote patterns for the Quick Bulky Baby Cardigan and the Bulky Baby Hat and they are in the patterns above. I wanted a really fast sweater so it has the least amount of shaping possible – and it is a quick knit. If you are looking for a speedy baby gift or charity knit, I hope you will try them. 😊
