Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

This petite blanket is perfectly baby-sized or lap-sized, whichever you prefer, or both! Squooshy garter stitch edging around a simple stockinette pattern makes for both a timeless design and soothing (and quick) knitting for you.

4 skeins Knit Picks Comfy Worsted or approx. 450 yds worsted weight yarn (Colors: Doe, Sea Foam, Peony, Bison)
US 6 needle, 24" circular
Stitch markers (optional)
Tapestry needle

Gauge: 18 sts and 25 rows / 4"

Size: 24" x 24"

I particularly like Knit Picks Comfy Worsted for this project because the yarn is so incredibly soft AND machine washable. Because Comfy Worsted is 75% cotton (25% acrylic), a small-size blanket like this one doesn't get too heavy, but still keeps you, your lap, or your favorite little one cozy and warm.
