Blanket knitting is not for the faint of heart. It requires an intense commitment; financial investment, time, and careful attention. The patterns I have highlighted today embody just that. Intentional yarn choices are key: finding fibers that will last a lifetime and beyond. Cables, lace, and twisted stitches abound; you won’t get bored knitting these special pieces.
I dream of knitting this throw in a smoky semi-solid. The dimensional stitches that this pattern creates are incredible. Can’t you just see this hanging on your blanket rack or off the edge of a couch?
Save this baby blanket pattern in your queue for the most special baby in your life. This pattern looks like an intriguing knit with unique cables and lace. This piece makes a beautiful item to use in photo shoots for the photographically inclined, too!
This pattern is adapted from a vintage doily and modified to make it into a lace lap blanket. Knit in the round, you start knitting in the center and work your way out. Timeless & classic–one of the most-knit blankets on Ravelry!
A motif similar to seashells and textural stitches make up this perfectly feminine baby blanket. I’m saving this pattern for the sweetest little girly-girl.
A perfect heirloom-worthy knit to keep in the living room for years to come. The cables will make
this knitted blanket flow right along and make for a fun knit. This pattern looks super warm; especially when knit at a tighter gauge!
