3 Easy Knit Baby Blankets

By: Audrey Huggett, Editor,

Blankets and afghans can be a little intimidating to the beginning knitter; there’s a lot of work that goes into big blankets.  Baby blankets are a great compromise for knitters who want to try their hand at afghans.  The smaller size of knit baby blankets makes them more accessible to slower or beginning knitters.  Creating a baby blanket is also a wonderful way to welcome a new member of your family into the world.  There’s nothing quite like a hand knit project to demonstrate exactly how much someone means to you.  Of course, you could always let one of these baby blanket patterns double as a lap blanket, if you don’t have any incoming babies to knit for.   These easy knit baby blankets will fun projects for any knitter.
