Working on this right now. Pattern is easy to memorize.

have made it several TIMES Babies loved it

Tried this craft? What did you think?

Row 6 K2tog, K2, (increase 1 in next st) twice, k3, ssk repeat from to end. Since the pattern doesn't specify which increase you can use your increase of choice. If you are like me you would use knit front and back (kfb) for the increases. It is worked over 11 stitches. You knit the first 2 stitches together (-1), then you knit 2 stitches. kfb twice, (2), knit 3 sts, ssk (-1). You have increased 2 sts and decreased 2 sts so your stitch count remains static. You will then repeat from K2tog to ssk over and over until the end of your row. Remember to do your border sts of k3 on either end.

Thank you so much for breaking this down - I'm relatively knew to knitting and was unsure of the best "increase 1 in next st" method. Have you completed this pattern, and if so how did the blanket turn out? Did you find the KFB to work well?

Row 6 has three decreases and only two increases. How can I find the updated version of this pattern??

Hello! You are viewing the most recent version of the pattern, so I would suggest you direct your questions to They are the company who wrote the pattern, so hopefully they will be able to clarify row 6. Hope this helps! -Kathryn, Editor of

It has 2 decreases and 2 increases, keeping the stitch count consistent.

I don't understand row 6. can you please explain it?

how many stitches do you cast on to begin?

Hello! The pattern indicates you cast on 160 stitches to begin the blanket. Hope this helps! -Kathryn, Editor of
