The Baby Steps Baby Blanket is quick, easy and fun to knit. The border frame is worked with the blanket as you make it. The frame around the body consists of a larger garter edge, then a smaller stockinette frame, then a small 2 stitch reverse stockinette frame that frames the body.

The stitches used are a combination of knit, purl, purl 3 together and yarn overs that create an interesting fabric. The needles are a little larger than the yarn band recommends, therefore giving the blanket a lovely drape. This blanket uses just under 4 skeins of yarn and works up fairly quickly, making it the perfect gift for the little one in your life.

It’s easy to adjust the size of the blanket, as the body is worked in stitch multiples of 14 over an 8 row repeat.
