What is your "go to" to knit for a baby shower when you do not know if it's a boy or girl??

How about knit something for a girl and something for a boy, you'll have something leftover you can use another time? xx

Now a blanket that's a good idea. For something a bit different I'd do a patchwork blanket in creams and browns and then have some pink and some blue narrow ribbon ready, then when you know what baby is either sew little pink or blue ribbon bows at the corner of each square. xx

I have made a ton of Aviatrix hats..free from Ravelry. It is quick, easy and fun to do. I substitute I cord for the button straps. The best part is you are given instructions for several yarn weights as well as sizes.
The best baby neutral color in my opinion is off white. I've noticed that most baby variegated yarns seem to lean toward girl.

I agree with you ...cream is a comfortable baby colour and teams up with many other colours

I loved a crochet pattern for a baby neck support, but can't find it at the moment. I did a little search and found this one in knit, which is even cuter. Quick, easy, unisex and useful!
This would be my choice:

A simple small blanket is always a lovely thing to have, to use in the car or in a buggy or just for a little cuddle up on the couch with baby. It wouldn't have to be too big. Knit in cream so could be boy or girl?

Last baby afghan I made was in the bright, primary Crayola colors of red, blue, yellow and orange. The colors were fabulous, and the recipient loved it, as she had received so many other items in "non-gender-specific pastel colors. She opted not to know the baby's sex until the baby was born. She had a boy!

Have a look at the Buddy Blankets on the Gypsycream site. Gorgeous little blankies with the head of a cute animal in the middle.

A sweater/hat/bootie set with little or no open work (so it doesn't look too lacy) and all done in a soft, beautiful white. Pink or blue buttons and ribbon can always be added later, if desired.

"The Knitter's Book of Yarn" by Clara Parkes has a great baby sweater (and up to toddler size) that you knit in worsted. It uses sections of block stitch and an asymmetrical button placket for detail. I like to use various combinations of the variegated yarn "Mosaic" for this one. The one on my needles right now is in shades of blue, green, and black. This yarn is relatively inexpensive, easy care, and has interesting color combinations. I often cut as needed to control blending effects. The current effort is being made from scraps from three other sweaters. It will be a little edgy, and my 20-something nieces and friends seem to like that.

I would make the diagonal baby blanket in red, white and blue. Goes with either sex, and is patriotic and colorful. I don't care for "baby" colors.

I would do a baby blanket and no reason to use pastels, pink or blue. The more modern look is for something colorful and doesn't need to be gender specific. Red would be beautiful as would a bright golden yellow color or green, the color of leaves. Whatever are your favorite colors to knit with, would be what I used.
