Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, make decreases, knit in the round

Pattern Description:

I love the geometric look of mitered squares. I think babies and their moms will appreciate these colorful items. It is a nice change of pace from all the pastels. Choose any four colors that you love. You can even coordinate it with the baby's room. This design is suitable for both boys and girls.

I recommend that all baby items be washable. The models in the pictures are made from knit Picks Brava Worsted, two skeins of each color you choose. This yarn is baby soft and washable, so it is very suitable for the project.


19 stitches and 26 rows to 4 inches (10 mm) in stockinette stitch.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Blanket: 39 inches (1 m) square; Hat : Newborn and baby (14 in. and 16 in.)


  • Worsted weight yarn in four colors, 436 yards (400 meters) of each color; US size 7 (4.5 mm) needles, US size 7 (4.5 mm) 60 in. circular needle, US size 7 (4.5 mm) double pointed needles.

You Will Also Need:

  • Stitch markers, needle for sewing
