Soft, Easy Baby Throw

By:

Theres no better way to welcome a new family member than to show your love through a fuzzy, warm blanket. Beginner knitters will adore this Soft, Easy Baby Throw pattern. A basic garter stitch makes up the bulk of this baby blanket pattern, so the most difficult part is the increases and decreases. Since the pattern is very basic, this is a great project for traveling. You wont need to keep track of charts or cable needles, just knit this cute blanket whenever you have time and youll be done before you know it.
