Here is a gorgeously textured baby blanket that combines wide pretty lace panels with bold, simple cables. It's knit in a soft, pima cotton and modal yarn from Knit Picks in a sophisticated color that would compliment any baby! The yarn has a luxurious feel and makes the blanket incredibly soft and supple.
Garter stitch borders are knit as part of the blanket, so there is no sewing or picking up of stitches to finish the project!
