This Allison Isaacs video gives general information about types of yarn and stitches you might use for a simple baby blanket.  It shows some nice examples. However, it does not give you an actual baby knitting pattern. The video in my next blog entry actually demonstrates a pattern and lists how much yarn you will need.

As this video states, a baby blanket is usually about 2 feet by 3 feet. The best type of yarn is machine washable (since babies have been known to spit up and do other generally unclean things!). Allison points out that you should avoid yarns with fibers that shed, such as mohair, angora, and alpaca. (I never use anything that expensive anyhow!) Between the washability issue and the shedding issue, I would say you should pretty much stick to acrylic.
