Just finished this baby blanket for a baby shower a few days ago. It’s made from a linen/cotton yarn–not super soft but still feels really good and has a nice hand (as they say in the fabric industry).
It comes from the book Knitting in the Sun and it’s actually for a bag/blanket with a drawstring so that the blanket can be pulled up into a tote bag. I skipped the eyelets for the drawstring and simplified the lace edging. It came out pretty nice!
