Knitted Baby Blanket

Last night I finished this knitted baby blanket. I think it is the first time I have ever knitted a blanket, although I have knitted squares which have been added to other blankets.

I am quite pleased with it. It is a simple pattern, which I found here. It has worked up really nicely. I used Jumbo Aran yarn, in cream, and size 6mm needles. The end size is 17x18inches. If I was to make it again, I would use 6.5mm needles, just to make it a little bit bigger.

I love that even that back has a pretty pattern:
