The Whale and Boat Blanket – Test

The Whale and boat blanket is my new project.

I am regularly asked for the tutorial of my whale blanket with the boat above its head, but I did not like its shape very much. So, after redesigning the whale and its boat, I decided to finally release this much-requested tutorial!

The model will therefore be slightly different than the one in the photo.

This little blanket will be the perfect « handmade » gift for the arrival of a baby.

Choose your colors to match those of the bedroom.
Its small size is mainly suitable for very small babies. It will therefore be perfect to be placed on a crib but also to follow baby everywhere … in his cradle, stroller, deckchair, bassinet, play mat …
* Full blanket photos will be available in the test tutorial.

The Koalas tutorial is a 12 pages PDF file. I recommend printing the last 4 pages of the pattern as well as the page with the measures.

Size and needles :

Finiched size of the blanket : +/- 55 x 72 cm (21.7″ x 28.3″)
Chart : 93 stitches x 165 rows in stockinette stitch
Gauge : 10×10 cm = 17 stitches x 23 rows
Needles : N°5 mm/US8/UK6 – I recommend using circular needles with a 30 inches long cable. However you can use straight needles if you prefer.

Wool :

This pattern has been knitted with the Drops Nepal Wool
1 ball = 1.8 onces et 29.5 yards – 65% Wool and 35% Alpaca

Type Aran/Worsted (Type Nepal de Drops) – Groupe C / 10 ply

You can knit this blanket using the wool and colours of your choice. The more the models are different, the better.

You will find all the colors and the retailers for this wool on this site : https://www.garnstudio.com

Quantities :

Quantites will be given to you in the tutorial.

Methods :

As in all my models, the blanket is knitted using seed stitch (the border) and stockinette stitch (the inside of the blanket).

I always offer 3 methods to knit the pattern depending on your knitting level.
– Intarsia
– Duplicate Stitch
– Jacquard
All these methods are explained in the tutorial with links to videos showing the different techniques (I am currently working on my own videos that will be available on this site).
The recommended methos is intarsia.
