Here is a gorgeously textured baby blanket that combines wide pretty lace panels with bold, simple cables. It's knit in a soft, pima cotton and modal yarn from Knit Picks in a sophisticated color that would compliment any baby! The yarn has a luxurious feel and makes the blanket incredibly soft and supple.
Garter stitch borders are knit as part of the blanket, so there is no sewing or picking up of stitches to finish the project!

This pattern is very workable for many projects, thanks to the guide sheet and pattern repeats. Reworked the pattern starting with the 10 stitch cable and did the math to turn this into a full size afghan for a church project using bulky yarn and size 13 needles. It looks fantastic. Will knit this again for baby blanket and a prayer shawl, again for the church. The pattern just flows along, is easy to do, and has a striking look to it. It's going to be one of my favorites.
