9 Easy to Knit baby blankets for boys and girls. These are such fun and can be as colorful as you wish, or use up your scrap yarns to save even more money! A good travel project to make in strips, or all in one piece. And the good news is, these patterns all use medium weight yarns (a size 4 yarn), and the larger size knitting needles, US # 10, 11, 10.5 and # 13. So you can see your work will really go quickly, great for those last minute baby shower gifts!! Any of the sampler stitch patterns are so much fun to knit, and you can learn a new stitch pattern at the same time.
Try one in shades of blues, or shades of pink, or shades of yellows. Or choose your own color combinations, either way they are fun to knit up, and make wonderful gifts that will be used over and over again. These are so much appreciated by new moms! Don't forget to make one for Grandma to put over her lap or legs at night too!
