Around the Block Blanket for a Super Comfy Car Seat

Not too hot, not too cold - this breezy baby blanket is just right for keeping out the chill without overheating.

Around the Block Carrier Blanket

Don’t let a seaside breeze or cold AC freeze those little legs. Learn to make this fun, light baby blanket when you join the I Like Knitting Gold Club today!

If you’ve ever been in a car in the middle of summer, you recognize the scene. On one side of the car, the sun shines through the windows, pretty much cooking anyone sitting in its path. The only way to avoid the greenhouse heat is to crank the air conditioning. On the other side of the car, in the shade, that AC freezes you. You have goose bumps and your toes are going numb from the cold.

And if you have little ones in the back seat, there’s only one solution. You don’t want your six-year-old roasting, so you turn the AC up, then use a boldly-colored blanket for your baby in the car seat. Everyone is happy!

In all seriousness, the Around the Block Carrier Blanket is perfect for those days when your little one just needs a little cover up. This small and light blanket will keep your baby’s legs warm, and the brightly-knitted blocks really pop against the white and gray background. Best of all, it’s an easy project, so you can work it up even if you don’t have a lot of free time.

Here are the details for this project:

Skill Level: Easy

Size: 28” x 20”

Gauge: 12 sts and 16 rows = 4” [10 cm] in St st

To start the Around the Block Carrier Blanket blanket, make the 12 blocks according to color placement, then you’ll sew the blocks together to finish. As with all the patterns in I Like Knitting, this pattern comes with all the directions you need, including:

  • A list of all the yarns and tools
  • Row by row instructions
  • Pattern notes
  • Detailed, full-color photography

The Around the Block Carrier Blanket is modern and gender-neutral, so it’s perfect for anytime you need a summer baby blanket.

Lotus Horizon Shawl

Babies aren’t the only ones who need a little cover up in the summer. Yes, it gets cold in the car, but the AC in the office can be pretty chilly sometimes, too. Plus, you never know when a summer storm is going to bring those cool breezes that require something a tad warmer than what we usually have on for a summer day.

I Like Knitting has a library full of summer comfort and style for any occasion. Take the Lotus Horizon Shawl; the bright, jewel-toned bands of simple lace are simply gorgeous. The Blue Meadow Cardigan is equally elegant, yet casual, or try the Seacoast Wrap, inspired by evening sunsets over the waves.

For versatile summer fashion, the Warm Weather Whimsy Scarf brings floral color to an openwork scarf and features a German braid pattern, coin cables, and a satin ribbon fringe. And the Summer Rain Scarf is as delicate and lacey as the mist settling on flower petals.

In all, there are more than 700 patterns you can choose from in the I Like Knitting library.

With your I Like Knitting Gold Club Charter Membership, each and every one of those patterns are yours, from the lacey scarf to the flowing summer dress, and from the cute baby blanket to the perfect handmade gift.

Get instant access to everything in our library, from eye-catching shawls to the perfect summer festival tank top. Have some fun with a pair of color-block socks or make a quick handmade gift.
