Sweet Honeycomb Waffle Weave Baby Blanket
This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Sweet Honeycomb Waffle Weave Baby Blankets that were designed by Suzie Liles for Handwoven May/June 2012.
These baby blankets use a waffle weave structure called Brighton honeycomb. This waffle weave technique has squares that offset each other rather than squares that line up horizontally and vertically.
While most waffle weaves have depressions on both sides of the cloth, Brighton honeycomb has depressions on only one side of the cloth for a baby blanket that is smooth on one side and textured on the other.
The perfect warm and snuggly baby blanket!
Yarns: Aurora Earth 8/2 cottons
Finished size: two hemmed baby blankets 36" x 36 each.
