I am really new to knitting, and I'm looking for a simple baby blanket, preferably with nothing to complicated. I was going to knit the whole thing in Garter stitch, but have been told that it might turn out very thin and 'flakey'.
I have some chunky wool, and was considering maybe putting a 5 row border around the main body of garter stitch. Any suggestions which stitch I should use for the border?
Or does anyone have any better ideas?
Please help a newbie with a creativity problem!
