I have this idea in my head for a baby blanket, but don't know where I could find a pattern. A friend of mind is having a baby at the end of July and I was wanting to make a block baby blanket with different animals in each block. Where can I find such a pattern, or at least a template of some kind to make my own?

In the holiday issue of Knit Simple, there is a pattern for a blanket with sheep squares. It's very cute, or you can design your own with different animals. Also, on the Berroco (?sp), there's a blanket with teddy bear blocks (st st and rev st st so you don't have to change colors)

These dishcloths would be good as blanket blocks. http://dishandwashclothmania.wordpress.com/animal-cloths-knit/
