Lovey Blankets

5 Dec

With a few new babies born to our family members and friends, I wanted to make something little for each of them. My older daughter helped me pick out yarn, and we found this really soft, fuzzy yarn, Bernat Pipsqueak. It comes in both solids and multi-colors, so we picked out some of each. It’s very different to work with, so I chose to knit. Very important to keep good count if you are doing a pattern. I get bored with just straight knit stitch, so I did do some ribbing on these. It’s just hard to tell! The pattern is something like this:

Cast on 45.
Knit across about 5 rows.

Then,
K5, K5, P5, K5, P5, K5, P5, K5, K5
K5, P5, K5, P5, K5, P5, K5, P5, K5

Repeat until blanket is almost a square.

Knit across about 5 rows to finish.

I used 14″, Size 10 1/2, knitting needles.

One ball of this yarn, which is 100g, 109 meters / 120 yards, makes 1 blanket approximately 13″ x 13″. It’s not a huge blanket, but I was going more to cuddle and take with, so it’s not as bulky to carry around.

Here are the 2 that I have finished. The green and purple one got pulled at little tight as I was finishing it up, which is killing my perfectionist mind, but it’s still really cute. I am working on 2 more in solid colors, 1 in Chocolate and 1 in Lime.
