Elephant Family Baby Blanket

A very close friend of mine is very close to her due date for her much longed for second baby boy. This little boy has been a while in coming and given he's the second child, his mummy is very keen that he should get a few special items to call his own. For this reason, I created a little cotton baby pram blanket that will be his own entirely and that will be hardy enough to go everywhere with him and soft enough to be a comforting presence. Given it is the middle of summer here, this blanket should be useful for slightly cooler nights and take him well into autumn/winter.


The design was inspired by seeing Melanie Rice's Baby Elephant Vest in Interweave 2011 (also on Ravelry). I modified her elephant design to become a mummy elephant leaning towards her baby and also added a daddy and another little elephant - to make an elephant family. It is a simple lace pattern in a 4ply format (using Bendigo Cotton in Latte colour here). It would work equally well in a wool format.
