Sliding is Fun!

Sliding is Fun! And so are soft, fluffy, self-striping cotton baby blankets!

THE KIT
This Sliding is Fun kit contains 2 printed copies of the pattern (one to share with a friend), 1 skein of Cumulus Rainbow and 1 hank of Cumulus in a solid color. Everything comes in an organza bag.

THE PATTERN
Sliding is Fun will create a stroller sized baby blanket with 2 skeins of Cumulus. From  darn. knit. {anyway} (an inclusive and accessible yarn shop in Stillwater, MN), Sliding is Fun is a very simple pattern, with a 4 row repeat. It’s just the knit stitch, but the stitches slide to the opposite end of the needle to work the next color, creating a stockinette stitch section between each ridge. A circular needle is a MUST on this one. 

THE YARN
Juniper Moon Farm Cumulus is a lofty cotton chainette yarn that comes in a variety of color options. In this kit we have a skein of Cumulus Rainbow, a color-blocking, self-striping yarn. Each Rainbow color has been paired with a contrasting solid color of Cumulus that will show off this simple pattern and awesome colors. Although the label on Cumulus says hand wash, we hear from our yarn rep (and others) that this one can be washed and dried in the machine-perfect for baby and Mom!
