I’m sure you’re familiar with Dedri’s work. Who doesn’t know about the amazing Sophie’s Universe, right? Dedri has so many other incredible designs to explore once you’ve made the Sophie.
This beautiful baby blanket is named Lydia. Dedri used a lightweight, summery cotton which is listed at Ravelry as a fingering weight. It’s the cotton which gives this blanket its gorgeous professionally-finished look. If fingering weight is too fine for you, try a sport or DK weight cotton. Since I’m in the US, I would probably try one of these:
- Patons Grace
- Knit Picks CotLin
- Knit Picks Shine Sport
- Cascade Ultra Pima
- Omega Sinfonia
These are all lightweight. There is absolutely no reason why you can’t use a heavier weight. Your project will simply be bigger. Some cottons have a tendency to bleed colors when washing so be sure to test your cotton before you wash.
As with all of her designs, Dedri always adds exquisite details, making her projects stand out. In this case, I am so in love with this beautiful floral trim around the entire blanket. Just gorgeous!
