A beautiful Moss and Cobblestone crib quilt made from cotton yarn soft enough for any baby’s skin. Also lovely for use in an elegant antique cradle to cover a doll. The pattern, although not fully reversible, looks wonderful on either the right or wrong side.
A friend of mine said she would name this a “waffle” quilt since the design looks much like the press of a waffle iron. However, being devoted to all things Aran, I thought I would stick with the traditional description of the interior stitch as a “Cobblestone” pattern.
Make a loving gift from this multi-page pattern, which comes complete with reference photos and detailed instructions. Beginner skill level.
Things you should know to knit this pattern:
Size: Approximately 24 inches x 30 inches -- for an infant’s use in the crib, car seat, or anywhere that requires a covering for warmth
This pattern is made completely on U.S. size 7 needles
This particular pattern requires a lightweight, preferably cotton, yarn that will give excellent pattern definition to the cobblestone motif. When choosing a yarn, be sure to choose a sport weight. The yarn used in the reference photographs for this quilt is a bit lighter than a real sport weight, but the yarn’s combination of cotton and elastic provides just the right mix for making these “cobblestones” stand out on either side.
Size US 7 (circular 29 inch) needles
