The Retro Baby Blanket
"The Retro Blanket is a beautifully simple take on the basketweave stitch with a textured border to give a pop of colour. It’s perfect for either boys or girls for the on trend gender-neutral look at the moment. The Retro Baby Blanket is made in soft, washable yarn and fun retro colours, and this basketweave stitch blanket is a must for any new arrival. Made from a central panel and a cute textured edging, the blanket grows in no time at all."
