An intricate knit/purl pattern makes a lovely baby blanket or throw that doesn’t require intensive blocking whenever it’s washed, making it a perfect gift. Two border options are given - a bit of a ruffly one and a flat band. The border is worked last making it is easy to knit it in a second color. If you have plenty of yarn and are so inclined, the ruffle can be made larger.
