About the Pattern Designed by Bronwyn Carroll of Good to Go Knits, Bay of Plenty NZ
'The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.' Ralph Waldo Emerson
Bronwyn says I love this quote, especially when you compare the potential of an acorn with that of a new & precious little human!
Although designed as a baby blanket, 'Little Acorns' is not only the perfect size for wrapping baby in, but with tender, loving care, has wonderful heirloom potential.
It will 'grow up' with baby to always be useful, making a particularly effective lap blanket for travel, including armchair travel.
