Baby Blanket Indecisiveness

I'm in a quandary. I have friends who recently found out they are expecting. My mind is already in overdrive for all of the things I will knit for this wee one. I love knitting for babies: booties, hats, sweaters, mitts, toys, you name it. I have some time before the little one is expected to arrive, but the largest investment of time and resources will have to go into a blanket. I want this blanket to be something that the little one will grow up with so I need something classic, soft, hardwearing and beautiful. I have been scouring Ravelry and Pinterest for some time trying to decide on the perfect first project for baby.

I absolutely love this...

Hansel Blanket From The Shetland Trader (link)
But I also adore this...

Baby Chalice Blanket from Lykkefanten (link)
And this...

Zig and Zag Sock Yarn Pram Baby Blanket by Debbie Orr (link)
And then there is this...

Forever Baby Blanket from Purl Soho (link)

Sigh... and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Does anyone out there have any advice for a knitter in need of a perfect baby blanket?



  1. Well, I love the zig zag one for sure! Here is another kids each have theirs, special ordered by a great aunt. Rachel's is pink like the one displayed here, and Isaac's is royal blue. They cherish them now! :)

  2. I like the first one and the last one, they are both really great. So many choices!
