A little bit of cabling, a little bit of lace, juxtaposed just so to create a stunning overall effect. This luxe baby blanket is sure to be a winner with its impressive-looking stitch pattern!
But you'll know that it was created with simple cabling techniques and some basic lacework. Ha!
This blanket is also knit in one-piece, with the moss stitch edgings knit-on. Choose a yarn, like this Knitpicks Shine Worsted for beautiful stitch definition and the softness and ease-of-care that the baby's Mom will appreciate. And Shine Worsted comes in a stunning color range, so stray from the traditional baby pinks and blues. . . babies look great in vibrant colors!

I love this pattern! It looks complicated, but is knitting up nicely and with a minimum of fuss. I love the lace and cable combo and the textural interest is wonderful.

This is a beautiful baby blanket that you will be proud to give as a gift. It was deceptively easy and fun to knit. I will knit this again.

Envoyant ce patron, j'ai tout de suite voulu l'avoir. Les torsades à effet dentelle lui donnent un tres beau genre.

I love this pattern. It is a little different from most baby blankets. I am about 1/3 finished with it. It is a little narrower than I thought it would be. Of course, I could make it wider next time and the length is whatever you want. The pattern is easy to follow and clearly written.

Haven't started yet, but it looks beautiful, easy to make, and, anyway, I love Sweater Babe !
