Dream Weaver Baby Set

The Dream Weaver Baby Set contains patterns for a baby blanket and a matching hat and bib. The same reversible stitch pattern is used in all 3 items. It's an easy to knit woven ribbon stitch. I published the baby blanket pattern earlier this year. I've created a bib and hat that has been added to the pattern. (The thought has crossed my mind that this would make a fun baby cardi too. :-) )

The blanket has a garter stitch border around the body of the blanket. You'll need about 500 yards of worsted weight yarn and size 8 (5 mm) knitting needles for the baby blanket. I used Lion Brand Pound of Love in blue for mine. Mine measured 27" x 27" unblocked. (I include instructions on how to make it bigger if you like.) The blanket includes written instructions and a stitch chart.

The baby hat is knit with about 60 yards of worsted weight yarn and size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles for a newborn to 3 month size. (Use size 8 needles for a 3-6 month size). The hat is knit from the bottom up in the round with either double points or circulars. The hat is closed at the top with a 3 needle bind off. The stitch pattern makes the top corners of the hat fold into ears (or horns). I used Lion Brand Pound of Love for the hat.

My bib was knit with Lily Sugar 'n Cream worsted weight yarn and pair of size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles. You'll need about 50 yards for the bib (less than a ball). It's knit in one piece from the bottom up, ending with the strap. After you're done, find a button that fits the buttonholes in the adjustable strap and sew it in place on the bib. The bib measures 6.75" wide x 6.5" tall (not including the strap).

The 3 page pattern contains the blanket, hat, and bib for $3.00 through my Ravelry pattern store.

I am confused about the yardage for the blanket. 500 yds just does not sound like nearly enough to me.

It's a small baby blanket 27" x 27". That's why it only takes 500 yards to make it. If you want to make a larger size blanket,it will take more yardage.
