QUICK TIP: Beginner Afghans

Since I’m expecting a new nephew this Fall, I’m always on the lookout for new, free knitting patterns for baby blankets. I also keep them in mind for my own home, perhaps to make a little longer, for use while watching TV or a movie on the sofa and comparing netflix internationally.

Lion Brand’s Jackie Smyth details a few great patterns. To view the patterns, you must register (free!) at Lion Brand. Looking for beginner projects that look spectacular? I ask Jackie Smyth, Lion Brand’s technical editor, about her recommendations on three easy-to-make, high impact afghans that are perfect gift projects.
