Drew Baby Blanket

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit & purl patterning

Pattern Description:

Baby blankets offer such fun opportunities to play with pattern, texture, color, and material. In this case I paired a very boyish blue cotton/acrylic with a diamond motif to create a blanket fit for a younger prince. (In pink, it would be perfect for a princess, too!)

The stitch used is a completely reversible diamond pattern surrounded by seed stitch. Unblocked, this pattern will pull in and ripple slightly, which is somewhat pleasing in its softness. Blocked, the purled diamonds "pop" against their knit opposites in a bold motif.

Gauge:

16 stitches and 25 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Half blanket is approximately 20in wide by 30in long (51cm by 76cm); Full blanket is approximately 30in wide by 40in long (676cm by 101.5cm).

Materials:

  • 500 - 1000 yards (457 - 914 m) worsted weight yarn
  • US8 (5mm) knitting needles
  • Yarn needle
