This super popular easy knit blanket knitting pattern is perfect for new knitters.
Simple knit and purl patterns are placed in block stripes across the blanket and surrounded by a simple garter stitch border. If you can cast on, knit, purl and cast off you will be able to knit this blanket.
This knitting pattern now has four blanket sizes!
I have included two baby blankets: A small square baby blanket that is perfect for small babies, buggies and car seats, and a longer rectangular baby blanket that is great for older babies at bedtime.
The medium and large throws/afghans are perfect for cosy family snuggles on the sofa.
The blanket shown here is the little square baby blanket, knitted with Debbie Bliss Rialto DK.
