Nothing beats the squishy soft comfort of a knitted blanket, but blanket patterns can be large and complex, and knitting one can seem daunting. A nice way to start with knitted blankets is with a baby blanket like this one, with a few simple cables. A small knitted blanket is a manageable project, and, since it’s a flat rectangle, there’s no shaping or sewing required. You can easily modify this pattern to make a bigger blanket by adding more stitches to the middle section of plain knitting, or by using thicker yarn.

Skills Needed
Combining knits and purls, cables
