Ms. Knits: Baby blanket and baby hat

Saturday, November 19

Baby blanket and baby hat

Finally, the baby blanket is done! It turned out well, don't you think?

And, because I had a whole skein of Encore left over, I decided to make a coordinating hat.

Baby blanket review:
Yarn - Plymouth Encore, 4 skeins (800 yards), color 793
Pattern - My own
Highlights - My first design
Lowlights - Boy, was this boring! (but, good to work on while listening to study materials on the iPod)

Here's the pattern for anyone who is interested:

Baby's First Blocks Blanket
Cast on 150 stitches using size 9 needles and worsted weight yarn. Gauge is not critical.

Rows 1-10: Knit

Pattern 1:
Rows 11-24: K5, *K10, P10* Repeat to last five stitches, K5. (14 rows total for pattern 1)

Pattern 2:
Row 25: K5, *[P1,K1] five times, K10* Repeat to last five stitches, K5
Row 26: K5, *P10, [K1,P1] five times* Repeat to last five stitches, K5
Repeat rows 25 & 26 6 more times (14 rows total for pattern 2).

Repeat pattern 1 and pattern 2 each 6 more times. Blanket will be 14 blocks by 14 blocks.

Knit 10 more rows in garter stitch. Cast off.

**Edited to fix a minor mistake in the pattern**

Okay that's just about the cutest baby gift I"ve seen in a while, probably because I love stuffed bears.

Anyway, you did a great job, and thanks for sharing your pattern.

So did you do a happy dance when you finished the last stitch?
