Nothing Difficult About Easy Knitting Patterns
Maybe all this talk of baby knitting patterns and getting all excited about knitting for that new little loved one has intimidated some of you. Well don’t be, easy knitting patterns will be your solution.
You may not want to get too involved in a complicated knitting pattern at this stage of the game. But you also don’t want to be left out in the cold. Everyone else is knitting all around you, why not you too?
The trick to this is to start out with very easy knitting patterns. Usually a baby blanket will do very nicely. And if you are interested I have some baby blanket knitting patterns for beginners free – and easy that will help you on your knitting journey.
And get this, you can make an entire blanket with one single stitch. If you can learn to “cast on” which means get the yarn on the needles ready to start, then you can make a baby knitted blanket. The first stitch every knitter learns is the “knit” stitch and I have a tutorial on this page to give you some help.

An Explanation of the Knit Stitch (English Style) – Read This A Few Times
Hold the needles in your two hands, hold the needle with the cast on stitches in your left hand and the empty needle in your right, hold the dangling yarn from your ball of yarn also loosely in your right hand. Next slip the tip of the right needle into the back of the first stitch on the left needle, take your right hand with the yarn and wrap it around the tip of the needle now in the back of the stitch. Now gently pull the wrapped yarn through the stitch and let it slide onto the right needle and let the stitch that was on the left needle now slide off the needle.
Read that a few times. It is not complicated. The idea is that you are working the stitches off one needle onto the other needle and then you turn the project over, so that the stitches being knitted are always on the left needle. You work left needle to right needle.
And when you do one row after another of knit stitches it is called the garter stitch. And it is beautiful. Very squishy and when you use really soft wonderful baby yarns it is superior, and makes the most wonderful easy knitting pattern.
So don’t let anything stand in your way of making your first baby knitting pattern. Just start with an easy knitting pattern. You will love it!

The side to side stitches are all knit or garter if you do row after row. And the up and down stitches are stockinette stitch which is knit one row, and purl the next. I’ve put a couple videos on garter and stockinette so you can see what I mean.
She also gives you the different amount of cast on to make different sizes. But really you can make this any size you want, just make it in multiples of 8.
