Pattern Description:

A little bit of cabling, a little bit of lace, juxtaposed just so to create a stunning overall effect. This luxe baby blanket is sure to be a winner with its impressive-looking stitch pattern!

But you'll know that it was created with simple cabling techniques and some basic lacework. Ha!

This blanket is also knit in one-piece, with the moss stitch edgings knit-on. Choose a yarn, like this Knitpicks Shine Worsted for beautiful stitch definition and the softness and ease-of-care that the baby's Mom will appreciate. And Shine Worsted comes in a stunning color range, so stray from the traditional baby pinks and blues. . . babies look great in vibrant colors!
