Adorable embroidery on a baby blanket:
Hmm, while I'm thinking about it, did you know you can use counted cross stitch designs on your knits? Here are a few things in mind, from my playing around with it:
1. Generally, one cross stitch goes over one knit stitch, or V. Or, you can work duplicate stitch, your choice.
2. Knitting rows are a little shorter than stitches are wide - so patterns will be squished a bit, that is, wider than they are tall. Either use a tuck stitch and go over two rows and lengthen the pattern a little, or choose a pattern where it won't matter.
3. If you plan to use embroidery floss, check it for colorfastness first. Just take a snip, put it on a white paper towel, spray it with water and let it sit so see if any color bleeds onto the paper.
