Baby blankets are practical gifts for new parents. There are many beautiful patterns to choose from but these Baby Blankets with Lovely Edgings are definitely among the cutest. Not only are they cozy and warm but also very decorative. It`s certainly that edging detail that completes the whole look. Therefore, whenever you want your blanket to look unique, choose an unusual border to finish it off. For example, a stunning reverse shell stitch will surely give it a special touch. On the other hand, you can decorate a simple scalloped border with a ribbon that you weave through and tie a bow in the corner. Which one will you choose for your next project?
