    Need a baby blanket pattern

    In the original forum I posted looking for a baby cardi pattern, but now I'm looking for a blanket pattern as well. I'd love to see your favorite modern baby blanket patterns. I'll be using a variegated DK weight cotton that I have in my stash. ETA: I'm an experienced knitter, so all suggestions are welcome. I'm just looking for something new/different than I've done in the past.

    Thanks!

    Back in the day, I just looked through stitch dictionaries for interesting (but not TOO interesting) texture or lace patterns and added two inches of seed stitch on all four sides (since I was using worsted, it was ten stitches left and right and fourteen rows top and bottom). Eventually that got too boring, so I did the seed stitch borders in a different color than the main stitch pattern. (Yes, that involved intarsia twisting for the color changes at the side edges and a second skein for the second edge.)

      This square in a square looks boyish, IIRC you're looking for something for a baby boy.

        My current favorite is the wavy checkerboard baby blanket. It had enough texture to keep it interesting, but is fairly easy and makes good tv and travel knitting. I would post a picture, but I deleted all of them with my project pages. The seller has an etsy store Bunny Totem Knits, and she has several beautiful patterns posted.

          ilexedits Great idea to just pick a stitch pattern. I may end up doing that. LOL! I'll skip the intarsia this time since I'm in a hurry, but that's a really great idea for the future. Seems like lots of my friends' kids are having babies now, so I'm thinking I need to knit up some baby FO's to have on hand.

            FreedomLover I really like that! I may be able to pick up a solid, coordinating color for the center and edges. I'm using some Zombie Yarns cotton. If Lorna is at the fiber fest maybe she'll have some solids or semi-solids that will work.

              cheshirestripes Thanks! I'll have a look. I may have to go on a baby blanket and cardigan spree and put aside some items for the next babies to come along.

                and Vadelma, which seems to only be available on R. I really enjoyed this one. It’s knit from the center out in a circle.

                      Cablegrrl I love that pattern. I have half a pack of that yarn. I might be able to make a smaller version...maybe go up a needle size to make it go farther.

ID:	900knitterlady13 Hi, good to see you on this side. There is a nice book by Jody Long, Sweet Baby Blankets to Knit: 29 Cute Blankets to Knit https://www.amazon.com/Sweet-Baby-Bl.../dp/6059192270

                        I have done a few in B. Walker’s Moss Diamond and Lozenge pattern, it’s reversible. I’m attaching a picture of it.

                          5xhappy That's beautiful! I'll look at that book. Maybe they even have it at the library.
