Pretty baby afghan that I designed myself. Approx. 36 X 42; can be smaller or larger by increasing or decreasing the repeats. E-mail me if you'd like the pattern.
I would love to knit this pattern for my grandchild expected in Feb. 2011. I need to know the gauge of the wool used as I cannot buy the one used in this pattern. I live in India and would look for an equivalent. Thank you
Hello, Thank You for sharing this pattern. I'm a new knitter and I'm looking forward to trying this pattern. I have a few new babies arriving in my family this year. I'm sure I'll have to make a call to my cousin for help, but, that's ok...
Thanks again, God Blesss You.
Thank you so much for posting the pattern. I can't wait to make it. I was able to copy the pattern from the post and paste it in a new word document along with the photo. I have it saved in my knitting pattern file- I already have more than I can ever complete!
I'd love to have the pattern.
Wow, this is a wonderful blanket. I would love to have the pattern. I knit for charity and gifts for friends and family.

Would you be so kind and send me the pattern?
God bless you and yours
This is just beautiful - so light and delicate looking. Thanks so much for posting it here.
Dear "bobbitoes": I'm so flattered! If you knit daily, I think you could get it done! I don't have your e-mail address, so I'll try pasting it here. Let me know how it goes for you.
Gwen’s Cloverleaf Eyelet Baby Blanket
Red Heart Baby Soft (sport weight) 3 skeins.
US size 6, 36" circular needles
2 stitch markers
1. Cast on 183
2. Work Seed Stitch Border for 12 rows.
3. Work eyelet pattern until piece measures @ 40".
4. Work Seed Stitch Border for 12 rows.
5. Bind off loosely; weave in all loose ends.
Finished Size: Approx. 42" x 42"
Note: Circular needles are used only because of the size of the project. Knit back and forth; do not join in the round.
Begin (bottom border): Work in Seed Stitch for 12 rows. (Seed Stitch = K1,P1 every row.)
Seed Stitch Border for Sides:
To create the border for the sides, every row of the eyelet pattern will begin and end with the Seed Stitch Border. Beginning with the Row 1 of the eyelet pattern, work in seed stitch for 9 stitches, place a stitch marker. Purl across, placing marker before the last 9 stitches. Work last 9 stitches in Seed Stitch (K1, P1).
Cloverleaf Eyelet Pattern:
Every row begins and ends with Seed Stitch Border (up to the first marker, and from the second marker to the end of the row). Therefore, the following directions begin with the 10th stitch (i.e., the stitch after the first marker), and end with the stitch before the last marker. All slipped stitches in the pattern are slipped as if to knit. (NOTE: To make the side edges prettier, slip the 1st stitch of each row as if to purl, then continue in pattern.)
Row 1 and all ODD rows: Purl;
Row 2: Knit
Row 4: *K5,YO, Slip 1, K2 tog, PSSO, YO repeat from * to the last 5 stitches before the marker, K5.
Row 6: *K6, YO, SSK, repeat from * to the last 5 stitches before the marker, K5.

Row 16: K10, *YO, SSK, K6; repeat from * to the last 3 stitches before the marker; K3.

Repeat these 20 rows until blanket measures approx. 40 inches.
