I have a pattern from Tin Can called Bounce for a baby blanket for my grandson due in May. I am a little more than a beginner knitter and I’m wondering is it very difficult? Could you help with yarn ie how much I need and what colours and type of yarn go well together? I realise you are busy so if this is not possible no worries. Thank you anyway liz
We do have a knitting blanket kit on offer too, but the stitch pattern would look a bit different – https://www.thisisknit.ie/product/beginner-blanket-kit-camarose/
There are some knitted designs on Ravelry that might be more similar to the crochet zig zag. Maybe one of these two?
I hope this helps! x
I love the zig zag blanket. Do you have a knitting pattern for it? Wishing you all well during this challenging time.
