The good news is there are plenty of options that make blanket knitting a little more interesting, such as knitting a circular blanket from the center out.
The blogger at Measured and Slow recently shared with me her version of a variegated spiral baby blanket. It’s based on the Round or Pinwheel Baby Blanket pattern from Genia Planck from the KnitList. She added a little ruffle at the edge and used a colorful cotton yarn, which is great for summer and machine washable, which new moms are sure to love.
