Pastille baby blanket pattern is late Easter gift

This baby blanket pattern uses an easy waffle stitch, which creates a lovely mosaic of Easter colors perfect for baby. Using two balls of the trim colorway and four single balls, each of a different colorway, "Pastille Baby" knits up soft and squishy at 25 by 29 inches. And the designer warns, this pattern stitch is "addictive" and has a knitting skill level of beginner to intermediate.

A waffle stitch is done with slipped stitches, so there is only one color knit per row, but gives the impression of fair isle, using multiple colors, but isn't. The blanket pattern uses a US 8 (5mm) circular needle and sport weight yarn. The designer used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.  Each ball is 100 yards or 50 g. 

Here is "Pastille Baby," a free baby blanket pattern link. Designed by Vickie Hertog and inspired by Lionbrand L40247. All photos by Vickie Hertog. Thank you.
