Today's post is on an easy Knit Blanket, specifically used for layering in newborn photos. Of course, you can adjust the blanket and use it as a throw blanket if you'd like! We're knitting with a larger than recommended needle size to give it a nice loose fabric. This also helps the project move along quickly!
I used DHG's Cyrcus Alpaca Blend, super soft yarn with just enough specks of color for this blanket. The colorway is Dance.
Knitting Needles (Straight or circular)
