This rice stitch baby blanket is simple and an easy project for someone who is just becoming familiar with knitting. It is also a very relaxing pattern for an intermediate or advanced knitter, since there is a lot of repetition.
A new pattern for a baby hat. I saw this stitch on a baby cardigan pattern and thought it would make a cute hat. It does! The pattern is written for a newborn, but increasing the cast on in increments of 12 will work to make larger sizes.
