12 Patterns Featuring Color and Texture - Perfect Baby Gifts!

Two of my good friends have recently had babies and while I'm still thinking about making gifts for my friends, I'm also thinking of their newborns this holiday season.

I love making baby gifts that are colorful or have a lot of texture - the extraordinary color palette of Modern Baby® is one of my favorite yarns for color, and for a touchable pattern with lots of texture, I always come back to the symbolic Tree of Life Afghan.  

Earlier this year, when Lion Brand introduced its newest yarn, Ice Cream, I got excited about the Confetti Color Blanket - the variegated colors and knitted indentations give it a touchable, fabric-like appearance - a delightful combination of both color and texture!

To inspire you this holiday season, I've selected some of my favorite patterns that feature color and texture:
