Rustic Farmhouse Baby Blanket Pattern

Rustic Cabled Baby Blanket- Free knitting Pattern

There is really nothing better than a soft cozy blanket, especially for baby. I have mentioned before how much my entire family loves the throw I made with the Bernat Blanket yarn, because it is that nice to snuggle in. I am also currently obsessed with the HGTV Show Fixer Upper. I was even fortunate enough to visit Magnolia Market while I was vacationing in Texas over the summer. If you happen to be a fan of the show than you are probably familiar with Joanna Gaines’ signature farmhouse style. That rustic farmhouse style is what inspired this knitted baby blanket. It is knit on large needles so it works up fast and the cables are very easy.
