I love free knitting patterns! This one is especially beautiful. The “Come Said Away” baby blanket was designed by Yarnhog (and is featured on her blog here).
I found this beauty when I was searching for things to make for my then still-in-the-belly nephew whose parents were designing a nautical themed nursery. I didn’t end of making the blanket, but my Mom did, and it turned out lovely! As it’s just straight pearls and knits, as long as you can follow a pattern (and count), you can do this blanket! I highly recommend this pattern as a gift for any nautical loving baby!
