Looking for an adorable baby gift? A gift that is cute and practical? You can always use another baby blanket. This simply stunning baby blanket will be a perfect gift.
Any worsted weight size 4 would work great for this blanket. I would choose baby yarn that is nice and soft.
You can change the light blue to pink and make a pretty baby gift for a little girl. A pale green would make a great unisex baby blanket.

- Baby Blanket: 29 in x 35 in – a great size for a new baby with room to grow (73.66 cm x 88.9 cm)
- Swaddling Blanket: 40 in x 40 in- for wrapping a newborn up tight usually made of gauze or flannel (101.6 cm) but a lightweight yarn would work
- Crib: 45 in x 60 in (114.3 cm x 152.4 cm) – a great blanket size for growing into, toddlers, or a throw for older children
Of course, these sizes are just standard blanket sizes and you wan make them to fix your needs and size. My size choice also depends on how much yarn I have left and the repeat of the pattern.
