This knit baby blanket is so unique with the little sheep! Great for a sheep-themed nursery and would also look great with blue for a boy.
The Best Yarn for Knit Baby Blankets
Before getting to the patterns, I thought it might be a good idea to talk about the best types of yarn for your knit baby blankets.
Here is a beginner’s guide to the different yarns that are perfect for knitting baby blanket patterns. We’ll start with some of the softest and most expensive and go to the cheapest (but still soft enough for babies).
You can even experiment with different textures and colors for your knit baby blankets.
Each of these recommended yarns has its own characteristics that will make for a gentle blanket but still have different textures.
I’d love to hear about your favorite baby yarn too! Feel free to leave a comment below and share!
