Feza Kit Baby Blanket

a luxurious, soft, and light blanket for a newborn

Today we are taking a look back at this baby blanket I knitted for my baby nephew. I finished it in February 2019 after picking up a kit at a local yarn store. (I believe the specific kit colorway I used is baby kit 506.) It measures approximately 24″ x 36″ and is machine washable! There are numerous varieties of color gradients to choose from, making it an incredibly gift-able item. (The forest green kit is calling my name…)

I absolutely loved the feel of this blanket. The hand dyed yarn, which is 50% viscose and 50% cotton, provides the perfect level of warmth while still being light. It is soft against the skin and has no “itchy” qualities to it whatsoever. The one minor gripe I had with this yarn is the way it was wound. It comes in a cake and can tangle easily. I recommend winding each cake into a ball prior to knitting in order to prevent any potential tangles mid-way through your project.

I used size 3 circular needles that were made of driftwood from the brand Lykke. This was my first time using size 3 needles for a large project. It took about a month to knit, however the wonderfully light blanket was worth it!

The kit includes all the yarn you need to make this blanket, as well as the pattern in a convenient zipper pouch. I found the pattern incredibly easy to follow and memorize, as it is basically stockinette stitch with a modified garter stitch border.

Now, this Feza gradient baby blanket happily lives with my young nephew! This was such a fun kit to make and gift. I would highly recommend giving this kit a try. From the various colorways offered (yellow and gray make for great gender-neutral options) to the sheer smoothness of this blanket, I hope you consider knitting it for the youngsters in your life. Until next week, happy knitting!

All done
