Simply Stripes Baby/Lap Blanket is a quick & easy project that uses bulky-weight yarn. I used Berroco’s Vintage Chunky which makes a great yarn for baby blankets because it’s both soft and machine washable.
It’s a fun pattern because you can play around with different color combinations, and since it’s a bulky-weight yarn, it knits up in no time.
