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!
Medium-weight yarn (4 skeins in different colors)
5 mm (US 8) knitting needles
Approx. 32″ x 40″
Cast on 40 stitches
Knit in garter stitch (slip first stitch purlwise for a neat edge) until 40″ long
Repeat this for all 4 colors
Evenly attach your 4 knitted stripes together using the whip-stitch
