The Bean Stalk Baby Blanket Pattern by Robyn Rich
The Bean Stalk Baby Blanket Pattern by Robyn Rich is a bright, fun and happy design with lots of cute animals, flowers, cup cakes and even washing hanging on a line, winding up the Bean Stalk.
An easy to stitch pattern suitable for Beginners and was by far, my most popular in store pattern!
Editors Note: This was my ‘go to project’ when I had a needlework beginner come into the store. I love the way that it gives a beginner a variety of stitches to learn in two different thread types, giving them exposure to textural finishes. I always thought it was a wonderful practical first project rather than a Stitch Sampler, which often ends up in the bottom of a drawer……
