This Knitted Deer Hooded Blanket Is Seriously Snuggly
This knitted deer hooded blanket features not just a hood, but also some fawn ears. It is the best ever blanket for baby to wrap up in.
The knit hooded blanket is done in Bernat Baby blanket, so you will need knitting needles 6.5 mm (that is size 10.5 in the US).
You will also need a circular knitting needle which is 40 inches long. That is 101.5 cm long in metric.
The larger knitting needle size is used for making the baby blanket and the hood.
The smaller knitting needle size is only used for making the incredibly cute ears.
You may have to vary the knitting needle size slightly to fit the gauge: 7.5 stitches and 16 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) with larger needles in the garter stitches.
In the stocking (stockinette) stitch, the gauge is 8 stitches and 13 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) with larger needles.
The finished knit hooded blanket should measure approx. 50 inches by 30 inches. In metric, that is approx. 127 cm by 76 cm. The measurements are excluding the hood.
