A friend is about to have her second baby, and I knew I had to celebrate with a few knitted gifts. There are hats of course, but where her first received a few handmade blankets, this little one still hadn’t received a single handmade blanket just a week before his arrival!

To remedy that, I hopped over to the store and grabbed some bulky yarn; with my size 15’s in hand, I whipped a fun knitted blanket off the needles in a few quick knitting sessions over a weekend. Below you’ll find my free pattern, if you’d like to make all the second and third babies (and then some) a bit of handmade love of their own!

I made this blanket with muted earth tones in a boyish palate, but I think this blanket would work with just about any color choices. You could alternate just two colors, you could choose a variety of tones of the same color, or you could go crazy with a huge variety!
