Baby Blanket Pattern

You have no idea how many baby blankets we help knit here at the store.  I often scribble a pattern for blanket knitter.  This time, I took a picture of the finished project so we can now post a simple pattern but made with pretty yarn then transforms into a beautiful gift. 

Easy Baby Blanket

Suggested materials:

• Us 9 needles (24 to 32 inch circular)

• 800 yards worsted weight yarn. (suggested  yarns include Lorna's Laces Shepard Worsted or
Blue Sky Worsted Cotton)

• Darning needle

• Stitch markers (not necessary but useful for keeping pattern correct)

Gauge: 4 stitches equal 1 inch

Note: If you use stitch markers, place them after k4, and then after each ten stitches until 4 remain.

With US 9 needles, Cast on 128 stitches

Knit 6 rows

Next row k4 * k10, p10 repeat from * to last 4 stitches

Repeat last row 9 more times

Next row k4 * p10 , k10 repeat from * to last 4 stitches

Repeat last row 9 more times

Repeat last 20 rows until desired length (sample blanket measures 40" long)
