Gingham Blankie - Knit

Designed by Rachel Brockman

Gingham fabrics have been around since the 18th century, and the cloth is beloved as the quintessential picnic blanket. What could be more fitting in a collection of fruit-inspired items for young ones? While you may not use the Gingham Blankies as traditional picnic blankets, we think they’re perfect for bringing to your next park outing to warm your little one while you enjoy wine and cheese from the picnic basket. Made in our soft, smooth Uptown Bamboo DK, this blanket is appropriate for use all year. It’s cooling and protective from the sun during the warmer months, yet equally warm and cozy when the weather is chilly. You’ll love making this adorable baby blanket!
