This is a very simple baby blanket pattern, which should be easy for even a novice knitter. The blanket consists of 4 blocks that are knitted one-by-one. The blocks are then joined. Next, the stitches on one edge of the blanket are picked up and a simple border is knitted on. You repeat for all four edges of the blanket.

Garter stitch is used throughout.

It is very easy to make the blanket larger as needed by adding more blocks. Because each block is knitted individually, it’s a great travel knitting project. Another idea is to make a joint blanket for a baby shower, with each person making one of the blocks, and then having them joined to form the final blanket.
