A blanket that is soft and cuddly and most of all easy to knit! The four row pattern seems easy to knit while watching TV! This pattern is definitely on my to make list using leftover yarn! Does anyone have suggestions on how I could make this in two or three colors?

This blanket is very tiny - 16 x 14. However its simple and should knit up quickly on the large 6mm needles and the two strands of DK yarn. Its a lovely pattern and the author provides directions for increasing the size of the blanket using multiples of 4. For every 8 stitches you end up with another 2 inches of width.

What a great pattern! This will work up quickly and baby can never have too many blankets.

Great pattern. Very simple and knitted up very quickly being on big pins. Looks lovely. Thanks. 5star

hi, I love this pattern, I'm new here btw, but I'm using 4mm and 12lpy and it seems to be taking forever, do you mind if I change up your pattern and make it unique to me? I would like to graduate the squares make them larger and add a few extra stitches every 4 rows.

Loved this pattern for a quick knit and pretty baby blanket. I used two strands of Bernat Baby Sport yarn in "Baby Ombre" and enlarged it by 24 stitches to make it about 22" wide. My second grandchild was "unknown" 'till birth, so the yarn and pattern were a great choice and "mama" loved it. Thanks for sharing it!

Im getting ready to try this but I don't know what pm means.

Hey there candyperkins! Pm means 'place marker.' That's where you place your stitch marker in the project. I hope that helps! Happy knitting!

Love this pattern well written easy to follow. Makes up a beautiful baby blanket.
