It is good for babies to be exposed to many colors and textures in their young life. These baby patterns will be just the way to go to make both happen in one lovely blanket. These multicolored patterns include those that require joining yarn of new colors and those that use a variegated yarn. Either way, these patterns will step you through the knitting process, and you will be proud of the results.

From patterns that are knit in squares and joined to patterns knit from corner to corner, you will find something you love making!
