We love the Log Cabin Blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting—a traditional quilt pattern adapted for knitters. Margaret made a lovely version in Cascade 220 and she's starting a second. The afghan is great fun to knit and can be made in any size—as small as a baby blanket or as large as a bed coverlet. We'll be starting one in Blue Sky Alpacas Cotton. Rowan Pure Wool DK or Misson Falls 1824 Wool would also be perfect choices, especially for baby blankets since these wools are super-wash.
