Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern – Easy and Beautiful
You can not go wrong with a baby blanket knitting pattern. It is just the easiest thing. If you are a beginner don’t be afraid to try a baby blanket.
This baby blanket is so sweet and it is very easy. Just simple yarn overs (yo) and knitting (k) and Knit 2 together (K2tog). And you only have to cast on five stitches to begin with. I love the ones that don’t require a lot of stitches to cast on. You don’t have to keep count and it is so easy to “grow” a pattern from a small number of stitches.
This pattern is from LionBrand, I’ve told you about them before. If you don’t already have a membership you sign up for free then you will have access to tons of free patterns as well as their paid patterns. But even those are very reasonable. Plus they recommend the perfect yarn for the project, but remember you can switch up the yarns and make this pattern truly your own. Never be afraid to experiment!
Here is the pattern:
Cast on 5 sts.
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: K3, yo, k2.
Row 3: K3, yo, k3.
Row 4: K3, yo, k to end of row.
Rep last row until you have 90 sts on needle.
Next (decrease) row: K2, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k to end of row.
Rep last row until 5 sts remain. Bind off.
Weave in ends.
