How about a cute baby blanket with wings to knit for a new arrival or a baby shower gift?
Fly Boy Baby Blanket is a free pattern you can download from my Ravelry pattern store. Here's a closeup of the wing motif. Knit it in a girly color and call it angel wings. :-)
I used over half of a skein of Lion Brand Pound of Love in denim blue for my baby blanket (or about 700 yards). I used a size 8 (5 mm) circular knitting needle to handle all the stitches. Finished size was 30" x 30" and it relaxed a bit more after washing.
The single page pattern includes written instructions and a chart. Have fun!
