This sweet blanket, knit with yarn doubled on big needles, delivers extra comfort and tons of fun. Choose to knit three or four panels with three different stitch patterns on each for a portable project that’s never dull. Play with different colors and the changing stitch patterns to delight moms and babies alike. An easy technique for joining the panels means you can work on each small sampler with no fear of complicated finishing. Nothing says love like a knitted blanket and there’s a lot to love about this one!
