I recently finished two baby blankets (already have 2 to do for next year). This one is a Feather 'n Fan pattern with 2 strands of Simply Soft on size 11 needles:
This blanket is a simple simple stockinette with a garter stitch border - I used RH Baby Clouds on size 15 needles:
and this is a close up - I'm surprised you can see the stitch definition as well as you can. That yarn is pretty fuzzy.
