A baby blanket is one of knitting’s most satisfying projects: It’s almost always appreciated by the recipient and the recipient’s parents, and it’s almost never tossed aside for a store-bought version. But of course, the real satisfaction is the love you express for new life when you set about handcrafting a cuddly soft, spectacularly beautiful baby blanket. Our Super Easy Crib Blanket in Super Soft Merino is just such an expression!
