Baby Blanket
I am very new to knitting. My son is having his first baby. I want to make a baby blanket for him. I am looking for something for a beginner. Does anyone have a pattern?

Welcome to Knitting Help!!

These are very easy and all garter stitch. Introducing color really changes the look of a simple blanket.

This one is all garter and the pattern is created only by changing needle size.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Here are a few more that would be easy to make.

This one uses very thick yarn, so it would go quickly:
Angel Baby Blanket

This one has a nice textured design:
Broken Rib Baby Blanket

Pretty basketweave design:
Rib Check Baby Blanket

I this one. I did one like it in a soft, bright colored verigated yarn and (Bonus) it looks like it was really hard...only you (and other yarn people) will know how easy it was!

I used Hobby Lobby's Baby Bee, Sweet Delight Pomp, color was Crayon. I knit it with two strands together and I loved the way it turn out!
If you can't stand behind our troops...feel free to stand in front of them!

I made this one before. See here.

Then the Rib check pattern Shandeh also recommended...

Both are super easy.

Welcome you'll love knitting its completly relaxing and nerve racking all at the same time lol. I've made 2 baby blankets each took about a week to do. I'm including the link that inspired my blankets, but I used machine washable chenille (pricey but soft at $8 {cnd} a spool) then I knitted squares about 12 cast on so a 12x12 square. I used 6.5 mm needles, the colors I used were white, yellow, green and blue (I had a son) then I used a whip stitch to put it all together, for that I used green. I kind of arranged them in a pattern as best as I could. Anyway I did the squares in regular knit. So theres the link mine came out kind of a pastel small patchwork type blanket more of a bassent sized is what I'd call it.
