When we are working up a knit baby blanket, we like to think about so many features to include that we often lose sight of what is best for baby. Baby just wants a cuddly blanket that feels nice. The texture of the blanket will comfort the little one, as well as excite their sense of touch. Use a solid color yarn to knit a baby blanket, and you’ve instantly allowed the special features of the stitch pattern shine.
From a simple seed stitch to a complicated cable stitch, by letting the colors of the blanket become the background feature, you allow the stitches to really be what is noticed in your handmade baby blanket. And as an added bonus? Not as many ends to weave in when you are done!
