“Jack be nimble, Jack be quick”, this blanket lives up to its name sake by being quick and simple to make. The textured stitch pattern of knit and purl stitches creates a beautiful fabric that any baby will love to be wrapped in. The pattern is easily adjusted to a larger size. This is a good beginner pattern, but has plenty of interest for a more advanced loom knitter.
