From the first car journey to an outing in a buggy, a knitted blanket will accompany a baby wherever they go. In this bright geometric design, the repeating pattern of increases and decreases worked in playful stripes creates a striking chevron motif afghan from 35 Knitted Baby Blankets by Laura Strutt.
These cute animal mini blankets from Colour Block Knits are all the rage in the baby world. One ball of Bernat Softee Baby Stripes makes three blankies and three heads, but only just—you'll use up every scrap of yarn. If you run out of yarn the heads can easily be made using small amounts from your yarn stash.
This is a really lovely stitch to use and the wave stitch is fast to work. The design makes a great scarf for men or women. Anyone can try out this simple design at home.
