Basketweave Baby Blanket
$4.25

Easy and Quick to Make!

This is a quick and relaxing project with a simple basketweave pattern for the body of the blanket. Edging is picked up and knit in a double seed stitch.

Yarn Choice

Baby blankets should be soft, which will eliminate all but the finest wools from your fiber selection. Cotton, or even acrylic, is a great choice as the new mother will be able to machine wash; she’ll never have time to hand wash a blanket!
