Learn how to knit a simple baby doll blanket with this pattern. Simple enough for beginners, and they make great gifts too. It’s a warm August evening here in the Pacific Northwest, and I’m knitting. My husband is reading out loud from The Silver Chair and row by row, a baby doll blanket begins to form. I’m using a bag of leftover yarn for this project as I only need a small amount to make a row or two of color.
