About Baby Elements
Baby Elements is the sequel to the fabulous Elements blanket designed by Sandra Kuijer from Hooks and Yarn. Baby Elements is the boldest baby blanket I have seen in a long time. The blanket is approximately 85cm x 62cm (35″ x 25″) and uses two light worsted / aran weight yarns in combination with a 4.5mm and 5.0mm hook in 5 parts. The blanket has flowers to make it sweet, and rhythmic linen and granny stitches to give it that sturdy look.
Colorway and Yarn Amounts
Baby Elements uses 4 colors of Scheepjes Cahlista, and one color of Scheepjes Soft Fun. The Cahlista is used for the details in the blanket whereas the Soft Fun is a background color. I thought, because this is a baby blanket and because I somehow associate babies with pastels and with rainbows, that I will use a small, pastel shaded rainbow in my blanket. I am using a soft white background color for my blanket.
- 5 x Scheepjes Soft Fun White (2412)
- 1 x Scheepjes Cahlista Color 1 – I used Lemonade (403)
- 2 x Scheepjes Cahlista Color 2 – I used Green Yellow (245)
- 2 x Scheepjes Cahlista Color 3 – I used Cyan (397)
- 2 x Scheepjes Cahlista Color 4 – I used Lavender (520)

Scheepjes Soft Fun and Scheepjes Cahlista are available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Deramores (UK), Black Sheep Wools (UK), Knotty House (CA/UK), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) and many other Scheepjes retailers.
To help you with the tricky bits, and maybe just to keep you company, I have video tutorials available for all 5 part of Baby Elements. In this playlist on my YouTube channel you find them all.
My Baby Elements
I made a rainbow baby blanket, and I am very pleased with how it turned out. Over the weeks we started with a small square, and quite fast we were already working on the lovely flower details.
In parts 3 and 4 we made the flowers, and in the final part 5 we made the blanket it it’s full size. The rainbow colorway makes this blanket fresh and fun, and suitable for both a boy or a girl.
And that’s it, all done!
Hope to see you soon for a new project.
