If you're ready to tackle a baby blanket, but most other simple blankies bore you, this Lincoln Easy Knit Baby Blanket is your next project. This easy knit baby blanket for beginners can be made in the shown gray and white for a gender-neutral nursery or a surprise baby, but if the mommy is looking for gendered baby supplies, it would look just as cute in either pink or blue contrasting with the white. The yarn used is a blend of cotton and acrylic, making it easy-care for stressed parents and hypoallergenic.
