I know I'm not the only one who loves Hudson's Bay point blankets, which were traded in Canada and the United States in the 18th and 19th centuries. The fresh, bright stripes on minimalist solid backgrounds made of wool and perfect for this time of year. So, when I came across this tutorial for a crib blanket inspired by these iconic blankets, I had to share it.

Sized perfectly for a little one, this blanket will add some handmade chic to any crib. You'll need 10 skeins of yarn and one set of #7 circular needles in 24 or 32 inch length.
