The Bumpy Road Baby Blanket is lovely to knit. Easy repeats make this a quick knit. The use of knit and purl stitches keep this pattern interesting. Make one for the baby in your life and it’s sure to become a favourite. Yarn: Caron One Pound in Rose. Or your favourite medium to heavy worsted weight yarn, preferably acrylic or an acrylic/wool blend. You will need approximately 850 yards (777 meters). Note that I used the entire ball of Caron One Pound (812 yards) and had very little to spare, so make sure you have at least 850 yards. If you plan on making it bigger, make sure you have a lot more yarn available. Needle Size: 10 US (6 mm). I prefer to work blankets using 40” circulars, but straight needles will also work Gauge: Approximately 15 sts and 24 rows = 4” Finished Size: 36”(91.4 cm) wide x 35” (88.9 cm) long Also Need: Stitch Markers (2) and a darning needle. NOTES: Blanket is worked in multiples of 8 + 6 stitches. This does not include the border. When you include the border it is worked in multiples of 8 + 22. PM refers to place marker. Move markers from left needle to the right needle when you come to them in the row.
