Easy Puzzle Blanket | Worsted Weight Version

I recently finished an important project: A blanket forĀ my baby- due January 17 of 2020.

Of the blankets I have made for my nieces and nephews, small, drapey garter stitch ones have been the favorites. They are the perfect size for snuggling in a car seat, and as the kids have gotten older they have been drag-around cuddle blankets.

Check out the other garter stitch blankets I made for my nephews here.

The Easy Puzzle Blanket by Purl Soho seemed like the perfect option for a lovely drapey lovey, but on reading the instructions I found it called for fingering weight yarn and a gauge of 29 st/4 inches.

No problem. The diagrams and instructions are excellent (I do love Purl Soho!) so lowering the gauge was an easy fix.

I used superwash wool yarn, anchored by Red Heart Chic Sheep with my scrap collection of Ewe So Worsted. Beginning with a cast on of 80 stitches on size 8 needles gave me a finished afghan of 26″ square.

We’ll soon be installing a car seat and this will be snuggled in waiting for our little boy. Just ten weeks left to wait!
