Newborn blanket...I did it again!!



This time with a skein of Malabrigo worsted in a light pink (17 Pink Frost ).






PATTERN

Cast on 67 st, with US9 or 10.5 (depending on how tight you are knitting)

Knit in garter (all knit) for 8 rows

right side, knit all stitches
then on wrong side, knit 6, (purl 5 knit 5) 5 times, purl 5, knit 6
on right side, knit 6, (knit 5, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1) 5 times, knit 5, knit 6
following wrong side, knit 6, (purl 5, knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 1) 5 times, purl 5, knit 6

repeat these 4 rows 21 times

then 1 row all knit and 1 row on wrong side, knit 6, purl 55, knit 6

finish with 8 rows of garter st and bind off.

My little tip
Make sure you do 2 extra border rows of go and back garter every 10 rows for the side border. It means only on these 6 stitches on each side of the border, you do 2 extra rows.
Hope it is clearer now ☺
It will even with the stockinette stitch, otherwise, the border will looks squizzed.

Also, blocking will make your blanket even and bigger, even a more professional look.

I have added the pattern in a PDF file to download, just click on the image and print/save on your desktop, tablet or smartphone.
