Somehow lace just seems appropriate for baby knitting—but what to do about those grabby little fingers? And what if the baby is a boy, when “lace” may seem a bit girlish? This pattern uses a simple border and ingenious eyelet non-lace to create a blanket with interest for knitter, baby, and mom. What a great combination!

The blanket may be made in two sizes to fit your situation. Instructions are given for a small or “half” sized blanket that is appropriate for a car seat or bassinet, with instructions for a “full” sized blanket in parentheses. These two sizes are approximately 20in by 28in (50cm by 70cm) and 31in by 40in (78cm by 100cm). The small size blanket requires approximately 500yd/457m, and the large size blanket requires approximately 1000yd/9140m of worsted-weight yarn at the given gauge.
