The Twinkle Twinkle Blanket was designed to be plain enough to be unisex but special enough to celebrate any new arrival. It can be knit in either fingering or DK weight yarn depending on the desired effect. Twinkle Twinkle is a charmingly simple baby blanket or shawl. It is constructed of four triangles knit “in the round” from the centre out to form a square blanket with a starry centre and an understated lace border.
The Twinkle Twinkle Blanket is square construction, worked from the middle outwards. It is made up of four triangles. The star pattern repeats over 6 rounds, and the lace border can be started after any number of star repeats.
