The baby may be eating the blanket, but that's because this pattern is just so delicious. Look at the Fjord's patterning! Don't you want to eat it? If you don't, you should knit it instead. Here are three baby blanket patterns, written in a yarn that does all of the colourwork for you. The pink cabled one on the back is going to be a great introduction to cable, and it works so well despite the busy nature of the yarn.
This has been written in the gorgeous King Cole Fjord DK, made specifically so you can get the look of complicated fairisle without the stress of actual fairisle.
