Additional Notes: 

You can use any type of yarn you like, but when knitting for an infant it is a good idea to only use synthetic yarns since we do not want to take a chance with allergies for such a young one. And you can use any color you like, make it your own, You could even use self striping yarn to make it very uniquely yours.

  1. Thank you for posting the patterns! The question I have is…where’s the blanket pattern used in the image for this page? The one with the basket weave pattern and the gorgeous scalloped border? Please post the link to it, if you can recall where you found it. 🙂

  2. Hello and thank you for your question. I am sorry I do not have the pattern for that baby blanket. I had found the photo and loved it too so that is why I used it. But I’m sure you can find the basket weave pattern, it is pretty common, but your comment made me think it was the scalloped edge that really intrigued you so I did a little looking to see if I could find some pretty knit scalloped edging for you. Here are some links to what I found. Hope you like them too. And thanks again for your question. It made me find some new ideas for my own projects.
