FREEBIE Metric Baby Blanket




I love the simplicity of this baby blanket. It looks great, and I think it’s perfect for novices and experienced knitters alike. It would look amazing in a hand-painted yarn like Malabrigo Rios (100% superwash merino wool), or equally elegant with Cascade 220 Superwash (100% machine washable Peruvian wool), Berroco Vintage (superwash wool-synthetic blend), or a washable cotton-synthetic blend like Cascade Avalon.  Heathered colours are always well received.
