Watermelon Patch Baby Blanket

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round
  • double decrease
  • mattress stitch (or basic seaming)

Pattern Description:

The Watermelon Patch blanket is comprised of individual squares. Each square is knitted in the round on circular needles, with miters at four corners decreasing to the center. Since each square is sewn together, there's a bit of seaming, but this gives you a chance to choose the placement of your squares according to color. The blanket is edged with reverse single crochet (aka crab stitch), but for those of you who don't crochet, an alternate knitted edging is included in the Designer Tips.

I initially called this blanket the Serendipity Blanket. When worked in a yarn with long color repeats, such as Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme Batik, each square is unique. As you can see in the photo, no two squares are quite alike. Of course, you can absolutely knit this blanket with solid yarns and get great results. But, sometimes it's nice to let the yarn do all the heavy lifting. Try one each way and see what you like best.

20 sts and 28 rows = 4" in Stockinette Stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approx. 35" x 35" (not including edging)

About the designer

I'm afraid I developed an obsession with knitting and crocheting Barbie tube tops when I was little. Fortunately, I outgrew the tube tops (in more ways than one) and I've since expanded my horizons ...
