Enchanting Forest Baby Blanket

By: Margaret Wilson for Caron

Enchanting Forest Baby Blanket

Sure, you could knit a baby blanket that's a single stitch throughout, but what fun would that be? You'll have a blast knitting this Enchanting Forest Baby Blanket, and it'll come out so gorgeous, you might want to keep it for yourself. The timeless pattern of varying stripes gives the blanket an antique look, making it a wonderful hand-me-down for your children's children. The size of this baby blanket is also more than enough for a small child, so there are no age restrictions. Knitting for baby has never produced such lovely results.
