Item description for Vogue Knitting on the Go: Baby Blankets Two (Vogue Knitting on the Go!) by Trisha Malcolm...
Rompers and booties and cute animal designs: there's nothing more adorable than babies' outfits, and these small and precious garments make easy-to-carry and quick-to-knit projects. That's why Vogue's first Knitting on the Go: Baby Knits collection was so popular---and why this follow-up will absolutely entice knitters and warm their hearts as the needles click along. What could be sweeter than a tiny "faux fur" coat? Amazingly, it's simple to make, with only a few stitches and rows; the thick yarn does most of the work. Baby will look completely endearing in an Origami Jacket, Giraffe Cardigan and Hat, Aran Pullover, or Bonnet and Booties. Other practical and good-looking accessories include the Felted Baby Bag to carry it all and Gingham Blanket.

Some really terrific blankies in this knit collection. My favorites are: Sampler blanket by Margarita Mejia which has 8 beautiful squares and a alovely lace edging. Entrelac blanket by Song Palmese, Geometric blanket by Wendy Bergman done in the domino type knitting in 25 squares. Crazy stripes blanket by Veronica Manno using Koigu Kersti in 9 colors. All of the blankets are interesting and the choice of type is wide. The cover blanket is one of the less interesting ones. Only 3 are for beginners with several being for the intermediate or experienced knitter. As a new grandmother, I'd suggest knitting them either in cotton or acrylic instead of wool (which some of them call for).
Awesome Baby Blankets Jul 16, 2007
I love the book it was a gift to someone who is making a blanket for their grandbaby.

Whether you want the traditonal baby-ish baby blanket or a more modern one this is the book you want. Great variety of styles! I made the sheep blanket and it knit up quickly and was a wonderful gift.
Pretty darned cute. Aug 8, 2005
I bought the book for one specific pattern, a grass-green baby blanket with fluffy Berroco "Plush" sheep grazing on it. The pattern calls for Goa, a cotton yarn which has been discontinued, but I found a good substitute.
The pattern was clearly written and easy to follow. I am thrilled with how it turned out, and so is the recipient, her baby, and everyone else who sees it. The rest of the patterns in the book appear to be clear and well-written too. However, if I never make another thing from this book, I will consider the price well worth it for just that one pattern.

The beauty of this book is its tiny size and quickness of projects. The first few pages are dedicated to a quick review of knitting, and then the fun begins. As the title indicates, most of the items featured are blankets, and some of them are just so cute! They use a variety of techniques, including three-dimensional textures (which babies love), color work, cable work, felting, entrelac, and stripes. One blanket looks so sophisticated that it can be easily expanded to be a grown-up blanket. There are both subdued patterns, emphasizing stitch texture, and more bold patters which emphasize color contrast and feature animals, etc. Colors can be adapted to any gender or nursery setting.
