bernat® mix baby™ corner to corner knit baby blanket

This gorgeously textured baby blanket is a real treat! Because it’s knit from corner to corner, you’ll end up with a lovely diagonal pattern. And, best of all, these fuzzy and smooth stripes all come from just one kind of yarn – Bernat® Mix Baby™, so there’s no need to drop or pick up colors as you work.
