Babies love textures, and who can blame them? This blanket uses a simple knit/purl basketweave stitch for extra depth. Beginners will find this not too challenging for a first “fancy” baby blanket, while more advanced knitters will quickly memorize the pattern and find it good for comfort knitting.
Note: The instructions are given for a small or “half” sized blanket that is appropriate for a car seat or bassinet, with instructions for a “full” sized blanket in brackets. Sample shown is the small size.
