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:
|Knit Panda Pullover||Crochet Little Boy Blue Blanket||Knit Sweet Sweater Dress||Crochet Modern Ripple Baby Blanket|
|Knit Lemon Squeezy Stroller Blanket||Crochet Bella Blocks|
|Knit Confetti Color Blanket||Crochet Cowboy Booties||Knit Baby Tree of Life||Crochet Down on the Farm Playmat|
|Knit Sssammy Snake||Crochet Royal Prince Baby Booties|
