Easy Baby Blanket knitting pattern (0-12 months of age)

This Baby Blanket for babies up to 12 months of age is easy to knit, has a great texture, it’s reversible and it doesn’t curl.

It’s knitted in Broken Rib stitch, and in today’s tutorial, you’ll learn the stitch and the pattern to knit the blanket. This blankie has a rectangular shape. If you prefer a squared one, take a look of this one.
