Hans Baby Blanket

from Katherine Vaughan Designs
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Hans Baby Blanket
Hans Baby Blanket
Hans Baby Blanket

Pattern Description:

Babies love textures, and who can blame them? This blanket uses a simple knit/purl basketweave stitch for extra depth. Beginners will find this not too challenging for a first "fancy" baby blanket, while more advanced knitters will quickly memorize the pattern and find it good for comfort knitting.

Note: The instructions are given for a small or "half" sized blanket that is appropriate for a car seat or bassinet, with instructions for a "full" sized blanket in brackets. Sample shown is the small size.


18 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in basketweave pattern

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Small blanket: 20in X 28in (50cm by 70cm) Large blanket: 30in X 40in (75cm by 100cm)


  • 500 - 800 yards (457 - 732 m) worsted weight yarn
