  1. Such a beautiful, “welcome baby” blanket. I don’t have anyone expecting right now, but I want to make it anyway! I will enjoy the knitting and have the perfect gift, ready when I need it. Thank you! 💖

  2. Looks lovely and I look forward to making this blanket. Though, I usually use 3 or 4 weight yarn with size US 6, 7 or 8 needles. Do you have size adjustments for other yarn weights and needle sizes or is it up to me to make those adjustments? Thank you,

  3. Hi! it might be a silly question but i have never knit a blanket before (only crochet!),… how do you keep all these stitches on the needle?

    1. Not a silly question at all. A lot of people will use circular needles, even though you still knit back and forth since the cord will hold the stitches. You can also find longer knitting needles.

  4. I always wanted to knit a cable baby blanket (chicken out). Since I have just rec’d a lot of yarns and needles here comes the blankets. THANK YOU SO MUCH.!!!!!
