Enniskillen Baby Blanket (PDF Knitting Pattern)
Leaving Enniskillen is an Irish folk song that tells the familiar story of leaving and the yearning to return – because home is where the heart is.
Beautiful cables, tiny rosebuds and a touch of lace create this cuddly baby / lap blanket that’s sure to be treasured!
Beginning with a provisional cast on, the offset mock cable side borders create a trellis effect enclosing the main cable and lace pattern. The top and bottom borders, also in the offset mock cable pattern, end with an I-cord bind off for a lovely rounded finish.
Two full versions of the pattern are included – one for chart users and one for knitters who prefer to use written directions.
