This is a blanket that you just want to snuggle with. What a perfect baby blanket … for babies … and for me… (I suppose we could up-size it, couldn’t we?!) Anyhow, working with this super soft wool in perfect pastel colors is of course THE thing to do this Fall. Comfy!! Give yourself a break from Halloween affairs and make this adorable cable knit blanket.

Free Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern
This baby blanket knitting pattern is not a beginners pattern per se’. But I consider it an excellent pattern for a knitter to learn how to make cables and to realize how relatively easy knitting cables actually is once you get the hang of it. The trick with knitting cables is to have an extra crochet hook or oversized safety pin or some other great method you like to help you move the stitches over.
This cable knit baby blanket looks splendid, and would make a gorgeous baby shower gift or Christmas gift. Or, make it for your own offspring. A couple of evenings in front of the TV (while paying attention to your knitting) and you’re done.
What You’ll Need
Knitting Tip: Order sufficient wool. First, you want to note the shrinkage of the yarn you’ll use, so that you’ll end up with the right-sized baby blanket. Second, you may want to allow yourself a couple of skeins extra as this, to me, this cable blanket just begs for a matching cable knit baby hat, a little soft toy, and a few other accessories like this, of that same cuddle-quality yarn.
