Easy Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern- a fast & beginner-friendly knit that makes a great gift!
Knitting a baby blanket is usually a time consuming project. Luckily this Easy Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern uses large needles, bulky yarn and basic stitches to move things along! This blanket is knit using a series of Garter and Stockinette stitches, making it an ideal pattern for beginner knitters.
For this project I used Bernat Mix Baby in Putty. This yarn is actually a combination of 3 different Bernat yarns. The textures range from boucle to nylon to a super fuzzy polyester. This self-striping yarn comes in several colors that are perfect for baby blankets (even pillows would look great knit in this yarn!).
