Pattern Details

Originally designed to say “The Cat” in many different languages, I have now created charts so you can embroider “Welcome” in different languages to use this pattern for the Welcome Blanket Project. A welcome blanket is traditionally created to lovingly mark the arrival of a new person into the world. In the Welcome Blanket project, each handmade blanket is a physical manifestation of this celebration of new refugees and other immigrants: “Welcome to the United States and your new life here! We are so glad you have arrived.” https://www.welcomeblanket.org Experience level: Intermediate Materials: Worsted weight wool, wool-blend, or acrylic yarn Approx 1664 yds (1522m) in MC (creme) Approx 25 yds (23m) in each of 4 CCs for lettering Needles: Size 7 (4.75mm) circular needles 36" or longer or size to obtain gauge Tapestry needle Blocking wires or pins Blocking surface Finished measurements: (blocked) 46" (117cm) square Gauge: 20 sts and 22 rows = 4" (10cm) over lace pattern
