"The Baby Steps Baby Blanket is quick, easy and fun to knit. The body of the blanket creates a lovely lace detail using yarn overs and purl 3 together stitches over a stockinette stitch background. The border frame is worked with the blanket as you make it. The frame around the body consists of a larger garter edge, then a smaller stockinette frame, then a small 2 stitch reverse stockinette frame that frames the body. The stitches used are a combination of knit, purl, purl 3 together and yarn overs that create an interesting fabric. The needles are a little larger than the yarn band recommends, therefore giving the blanket a lovely drape. This blanket uses just under 4 skeins of light #3 / DK weight yarn and works up fairly quickly, making it the perfect gift for the little one in your life. For the original design, I used Paintbox Simply DK and approximately 1100 yards. It’s easy to adjust the size of the blanket, as the body is worked in stitch multiples of 14 over an 8 row repeat. This pattern has been tested and is written using US terminology."
