Peekaboo is so much easier when you've got some eyelets to help you peek! This gender-neutral but still light and lacy blanket packs a lot of movement and texture into a very simple stitch.
If you've never done the s2kp stitch (sometimes called sl2-k1-psso) before, you'll get lots of practice with this blanket. Put the right needle into the first two stitches as if you were going to knit them together, and slip them off the left needle. Knit the next stitch normally. With the tip of the left needle, lift and pass over the knit stitch the two stitches that were slipped. You have decreased two stitches. What makes this stitch special is that the middle of the three "sits" on top of the other two, keeping the line of stitches smooth.
This blanket, like most of mine, is available in two sizes. The smaller size is great for bassinets, carseats, and "lovies." The full size works great in a crib or as a floor blanket.

I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
