Two Infant Car Seat Blankets to Knit PDF
There’s nothing like a new baby to make us want to wield our knitting needles in a frenzy of creativity. There are tons of ways to knit a fabulous baby blanket, but these two beauties are the ultimate in practicality as well. Each fits neatly inside a car seat with just a little bit of fabric to tuck around its occupant, and has an offcenter opening for the buckle. You can tuck Baby into the car seat without having to unwrap all of her layers, or waking him up while you wrestle with a too-big blanket!
