Reporanka baby blanket pattern, ENG

8,00 €


In Finnish, this baby blanket’s name Reporanka refers to a state of being tired and involves the word ‘fox’. The expression is like many others; it doesn’t have a literal meaning as such although it’s been widely used for generations and everybody knows its meaning.

The stranded part of the Reporanka baby blanket is worked in the round with a circular needle. Then two lines are sewn with a sewing machine to secure the edges, and the work is steeked open in the middle of the sewn stitches. The blanket is finished with a single color moss stitch border, which is knitted in the round with a circular needle.

The yarn used in the pattern is fingering weight merino sock wool held double, but you can also use worsted or aran weight yarn held single. The gauge and the weight of the yarn don’t need to match the instructions exactly, as you can repeat the fox pattern laterally and the flower pattern in the center of the blanket laterally and vertically as many times as necessary to achieve the desired size. Therefore, you can also use this pattern to make an adult size throw or a bedspread. The colors of the blanket work well reversed, so instead of stranded knitting it can be knitted in double, too.
