Elephant Baby Blanket

A double-knit loom pattern for baby with elephants?  How cute is this!  Another great pattern from the Knittingboard Blog, this darling blanket is made using the Stockinette Stitch as well as using Stockinette and Purl stitches for the top and border (of course, you can just use Stockinette stitch for those borders instead, as well).


Here’s the details from Knittingboard:
