A chunky blanket and a beloved kiddo. The only way this scenario gets any better is if said blanket is one you knit yourself. Bring that personal touch to snuggle time with this DIY kit. Designed for entry-level knitters, it consists of circular knitting needles, an easy-to-follow pattern, and three balls of sumptuous merino wool. Clock three to four hours of needlework, and voilà–you'll have yourself a contemporary, color-blocked throw. Fold it over the side of a crib, place it at the foot of a child's bed, or simply wrap it directly around your favorite pint-sized person for warmth. Yarn made in Italy; kit assembled in Florida.
