So my mum is a knitter not me, and she is looking for a plaid baby blanket pattern.  But I figure if she gets her hands on a generic "how to knit plaid" she cna probably make it into a baby blanket sized square or rectangle.  So can anyone pass along any links out there for plaid knitting?  I found a blue/purple/white actual plaid baby blanket, but it more looked like squares of differing colour rather than an accurate plaid.

Here's a scarf pattern that has a paid effect - http://www.hanksyarn.com/PDF/August_is_for_Jack.pdf

She could just make a wider version of it to make it whatever size she wants. To make it look more 'babyish' she can use different colours that are more pastel maybe to have a softer look.

Here's another one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24845744@N03/2763516813

There's no pattern for that.. but basically you're knitting with 2 strands held together - either 2 white, 2 red, or one of each. I think the easiest way to knit that one would be to do it in long strips and sew it together. You could make the squares whatever size you want, or even vary the widths to make it look more like a traditional plaid.
