Waves Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern- beginner-friendly and fun to knit!
This wave pattern may look complicated, but it’s a breeze to knit! The pattern is created using a series of knit and purl stitches. Easy, right? This Waves Baby Blanket is light, airy and ideal for spring temperatures. I went with a coastal color palette, but you also use this pattern as a scrap-busting project and knit the blanket using a rainbow of colors.
Terms found in this pattern: YO- yarn over. This means to To make a yarn over, you simply bring the knitting yarn (the “over” strand) over the needle between two existing stitches on one row, and then work that strand as a stitch when you work your way back to it in the next row.
