This plaid baby blanket pattern is so easy and quick to work up! It only uses the most basic of stitches and is the perfect beginner project to try out knitting colorwork with simple, innovative techniques. It’s also the perfect gift for new moms and baby showers for boys or girls.

This is an easy level knitting pattern, and the techniques you will need to know are cast on, knit, purl, change color, counting stitches, and casting off.

You will also need to know how to work a crochet surface slip stitch (photo tutorial on this in the pattern).
