Lotus Baby Blanket
This blanket is a pretty quick knit. All the confusing stuff is right at the beginning, so starting over/frogging (not that anyone ever does…) isn’t too painful. The petal pattern is easily memorized and doesn’t take much concentration after you figure it out. This probably isn’t the best pattern for your first lace project, it would make a great second one.
Requires basic lace knitting skills.
