Summer Fence Baby Blanket

By: Bernat

Be reminded of late night barbecues and hours spent on the backyard patio with this adorable Summer Fence Baby Blanket. The fence-like, linked cable pattern will bring back fun summer memories, while keeping Baby protected from the breeze. The bold texture of this free knit afghan pattern makes it as much of a decoration, as it is a practical essential for the nursery.
