This knitting pattern PDF is for the Minty Baby Blanket - a two-colour classic blanket for baby.
The garter stitch border pattern is textured with a feature knit stitch and the mitred corners provide a neat finish. The centre section pattern is a broken rib, consisting of 2 easy pattern rows: every right-side row is knit stitch, every wrong-side row is rib stitch.
It is knitted in one piece (except for the side borders).
The Minty Baby Blanket requires average to intermediate knitting skills.
