Whale of a Time Nautical Themed Baby Blanket


Whale of a Time Baby Blanket is a nautical and whale themed blanket that will be a hit for new mommies! This is typically a stroller sized baby blanket that can easily be made larger if desired. I like to use Hobby Lobby yarn because it washes and dries so easily and is so soft. However, any worsted weight yarn will work.

The stitches you need to know for this pattern are:

➰ Knit
➰ Purl
➰ M1R (make one right)
➰ M1L (make one left)
➰ K2tog

There is a chart for the whale but it is also written out! The whales are made with knits and purls. The other stitches are for the chevron sections.

The blanket uses about 40 yards for the borders, 100 yards for each color of the chevron sections and about 100 yards for the whales.

The first time I made this blanket it was for a new baby whose nursery was going to be a whale theme. It was a huge hit at the baby shower!
