Hi there, i hope this one can be informative to some.


1. Cast on 150 stitches using your desired cast-on method. Knit every row for the first five rows.

2. Start the pattern. Knit the first row. For the second row, knit the first five stitches, purl to the last five, knit the last five stitches.

3. Work the pattern. Repeat these alternating knit and purl rows until your work measures 34 inches.

4. Finish the blanket. Knit five rows and bind off. Weave in any loose ends using the tapestry needle.

I like to make easy baby blankets using a simple increase. You start with 5 stitches and make it as large as you like. You can see pictures of some of the baby blankets I've made on my blog here:

Cast on 5 stitches
Row 1: Knit across
Row 2: K3, yo, k2

Row 3: K3, yo, k3

Row 4: K3, yo, knit to the end of the row

Repeat row 4 until there are 160 stitches on the needle.

To decrease:

K2, knit 2 together, yo, k2tog, knit to the end of the row.

Repeat this until there are 5 stitches left and bind off, then weave in the ends.
