Easy Color Block Baby Blanket

Color Block Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern

This easy baby blanket is knit in three strips and then sewn together. Although it could be done in intarsia, this design avoids having to juggle the three bobbins of yarn that would be needed. Since it uses only one skein of each of the two colors, you would also need to equally divide the one skein to avoid buying more yarn than you need. It also makes a wonderful doll blanket! Size:
