Free Knitting Pattern: Exclusive MillaMia Johan Blanket

Beautiful MillaMia Baby Blanket

The perfect gift to welcome a newborn or for a christening, our free pattern this week is the gorgeous Johan Blanket by MillaMia, exclusively available on loveknitting.

This is a contemporary design with a classic feel, sure to be loved for many years by whoever receives it.


Pattern Revision: Please note that the Cr5R abbreviation should read cross 5 right – slip next 2 sts onto a cable needle and hold at back of work, k3, then p2 from cable needle.

The instruction for the Cr5L would be: Slip the next 3sts to the cable needle, hold at front, p2 sts from the left hand needle and then k3 from the cable needle.

To download the pattern: click on the picture above and the pattern will open in a separate window. Be patient; it can take some time! If that doesn’t work, right-click instead and select ‘Save link as…’ This will save the pattern as a pdf on your computer, which you can then find and print. If you’ve clicked on the pattern and nothing seems to be happening, your computer may have saved it as a pdf; try looking in your ‘Downloads’ folder.

MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino

This 100% Merino wool yarn is super soft, making it ideal for babies and young children. Using softer colours really brings out the beautiful design of this blanket, as shown here in Forget Me Not (120). There are 22 colours of MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino available at loveknitting, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect pastel.

    To Sue Carrigan – 2nd November 2013 @ 2.19

    Try the larger dolls clothes patterns, quite a lot are suitable for premature baby sizes (it does state on the patterns for premature babies} and work very well.

    For Sue Carrigan wanting small size cardigans.

    try using a pattern for a cardigan using Double Knitting wool but make it using 4 ply wool and 2.75mm and 3mm needles.

    I have done this loads of times with cardigans and matinee coats and they usually are approx 2 sizes smaller. For example a 16 inch pattern knits as a size 12 inch.

  14. AD says:

    I hate knitting in anything under 4mm! Any other yarn suggestions for this blanket peoples?

  23. ros long says:

    Couple of errors I think ive noted. Zig zag A is over 26st and bobble and wave is over 30. The first pattern row adds up to 184? Therefore increase row is too short. Am I correct?
