Knitted Baby Blanket

My sister-in-law is having a baby boy in April and I wanted to make her something special. Her nursery colors are navy and grey and so I thought a little blanket using those colors would be perfect. Based on a combination of knitting patterns I found on Pinterest, I came up with this pattern for a striped baby blanket that was so easy to make!
