 Baby Blanket Help!

Help! I am trying to make the perfect baby blanket for my little girl who is due on January 15th. I have lots and lots of gorgeous, soft, cream-colored sportweight merino wool, but no satisfactory pattern. I've tried about ten things to date and none of them are floating my boat so far. I'd like something fairly simple, since I have a toddler to race around after and Christmas knitting to finish up, too- but I want it to be lovely, too. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm at my wits' end!

Thanks in advance! :)

Have you seen Fiber Trends Easy Baby Blanket patterns? Really pretty and quick to knit. Unfortunately not downloadable but they have stockists in various countries, and you get 3 designs for the price of 1

Go to Baby & Child in the index and look for CH-23 and CH-24, Easy Knit Baby Blankets 1 and 2

Not sure how it would look with a solid color, but I really like the Big Bad Baby Blanket pattern in the Stitch 'n B****h book... Calls for koigu held double... Good luck!

I'm just finishing up the cosy blanket from Debbie Bliss for my daughter, who very inconveniently showed up 6 weeks early, and as a result is getting her blanket for Christmas instead of when she arrived this fall! It's a lot of moss stitch, but looks lovely -- I'm using DB cashmerino.

I love the Prairie Blanket from Oat Couture.

It's not difficult at all ... the border looks much trickier than it is.

Debbie Bliss's baby knits book has a moss stitch blanket with a hood on the cover in cream. I knit it for my little guy and it turned out really nice. I made it in acrylic so I could throw it in the machine and he loves it. quick, easy, pretty.
