Winsford Stroller Blanket
The Winsford Stroller Blanket is perfect for a baby or toddler. It is fully reversible and features an edge-to-edge design with a wonderful interplay of colours. The stitch looks complex but is actually easy to work – always a bonus!
The pattern includes full line-by-line instructions for two different sizes. The small size can be used for a stroller or push-chair while the larger version is perfect for a toddler bed. Both have softly-rounded corners and can be worked in a variety of colours to suit the different seasons.
