Elizabeth Johnston is renowned for her stunning Fair Isle work in beautiful shades and this blanket in soft Nordic tones with star motifs is no exception.

Elizabeth explains the inspiration behind the Starlight Blanket:
When my daughters were small I would wake them on a calm winter’s night, wrap them in blankets, and take them outside to see the Mirrie Dancers (northern lights). We could hear the sea and the sheep roarin’ (bleating) in the hills. My daughter named this cosy baby blanket ‘Starlight’ because she remembers!

The blanket is worked in two sizes - small for a car seat, pushchair or pram, or larger for a baby’s cot.
It’s knit in seven calming shades of Jamieson and Smith Jumper weight.
