Cute as a Button Knit Blanket

Cute as a Button Knit Blanket

I knit the Cute as a Button Baby Blanket when I was 9 months pregnant with my last child. The Cute as a Button Baby Blanket is a knit blanket that was part of the 2020 Summer Lineup with Lion Brand Yarn. I felt so honored to have been chosen to be featured alongside of 12 other amazing knitters and crocheters. I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton Yarn for this baby blanket and I’m obsessed with the feel and drape of this finished piece. I also got to play with two new stitches to me: the Latvian (Lateral) Braid and the Estonian Button Stitch. These were both really fun to learn and work with!

I hope to see lots of little sweeties with their Cute as a Button Baby Blankets!
