Bunkie Blankie PDF
This classic baby blanket From Swans Island has the look of the traditional stripe patterns found in our Swans Island blankets. The Bunkie Blankie has a simple linen stitch used throughout to impart a woven look to the face of the fabric. The back side of this fabric has an equally interesting texture that looks like seed stitch, so there really is no "right" or "wrong" side.
