I think the dewdrop pattern would make a nice baby blanket or lapgan. The pattern is easy to follow with an 8 row repeat. Special stitches in this pattern include yarn over, slip stitches, knitting two together and passing the slip stitch over. If you are comfortable with these stitches, this pattern will work up quickly.

Skill level: Intermediate

6 Stitch pattern repeat.

Materials and Supplies

You can use any weight yarn along with the appropriate size needles for that particular yarn. A suggestion of needle sizes often is posted on the yarn label (wrapper).
