Honored to have been asked to design this blanket for Red Heart Yarn! It features a two-color linen stitch center, surrounded by a seed stitch border and attached welted ruffle. Great for snuggling baby or as a throw on your couch.
“Sunnyside Up” is featured in the “Hello Baby Look Book” by Red Heart Yarns (see page 8) The Look Book is available as a free download: https://www.redheart.com/EBooks/Hello-Baby-Lookbook/p/EB171
See also my blog post “Keep on the Sunnyside” where I discuss factors shaping my creative design process on this project.

- Other than knit and purl, the knitter should know how to slip a stitch and understand how to move the yarn forward between stitches and to the back between stitches.
*Specific techniques employed besides or other than basic knit and purl.
