Cable Flower Baby Blanket

If you’re a fan of knitted baby blankets, this project may interest you. Not only is its shape unusual and eye-catching, but it also features an intricate textural pattern in the middle. The author, Grid Mammal Crafts, used only one color, but you can make it even more interesting by choosing to work with multiple shades of yarn.

Easy Knitted Baby Quilt

You don’t know how easy it is to create the basketweave effect you see in the photos. Mary’s blanket features wide segments that look like they are intertwined when in reality it’s just a clever play of knit and purl stitches. Notice the border, though – the rice stitch is perfect for that, as it doesn’t curl up and always stays completely flat.
