A friend of the family is having twins, twin boys. I want to make some baby blanket, but I have no idea what pattern to use. So I'm posting to craftster for ideas!  I need something that would work up fairly quick, not be so challenging that I'm pulling my hair out, but not so easy that I'm going to be bored making two of them. Nothing with eyelets, nothing with fun fur, give me your best shot. I'm cross-posting this to crochet.

I'd start here - all the baby blanket patterns from Knitting Pattern Central:

The new issue of Knitty has a baby blanket called Op Art, that looks like a square tunnel, with the spiral, you know?  It's very nifty, and in the right colors would make a good blanket for either gender.

I'm knitting Op Art right now because of how quick I will think it will work up - super easy. It is a lot of straight knit and straight purling, but because of the colour combo I haven't found it too dull to look at.
