Baby Blankets in Huck Lace

A beginner weaver, Beny has been “baking” Baby Blankets in Huck Lace For my second “real” piece, I decided to weave a baby blanket for a friend with a “bun” in her oven. They following day, I learned that 6 more friends were baking up new additions, and one had doubled up! Off to The Mannings I went! Returning home with more than I intended to purchase, I came up with ten baby blankets. Sent the extra two to a cousin for her baking friends.


I used a 10-dent reed, double-sleyed.

All three yarns are mill ends from The Mannings in Pennsylvania.

The blue and pink are 6/2 cotton. The cream actually has tiny pink, blue, yellow, and green slubs. It is also 6/2 cotton, but feels a bit bigger and has a little more spring.

I threaded a 2″ selvedge on each side and threaded alternating pink and blue groups of seven as 1-2-3-2-3-2-1, alternating with a group of three cream threaded as 4-1-4. I also wove a 2″ selvedge on each end.

I beat pretty hard to get 10 ends per inch each way. After mitering the corners and sewing rolled hem edges (no fringe because they are babies) the finished dimensions are 38″ x 44.”

The best part is that they are done – hooray! I had fun doing them, but now it’s time to move on.
