Look at these citrus colors!! I love that this blanket could totally work for baby boys or baby girls.

This is a sweet small blanket, perfect for the bassinet or for use in the car seat. If you want to make it larger just add an even number of stitches and of course it will take another ball of yarn. For every 20 stitches you add to the cast on, the blanket will be 4" wider.

At row 9, I ended with 7 stitches when there should be only 6 to knit. After rippingg it all out, and starting over, it happened again. I purled the extra stitch before knitting the 6 stitches. The next row came out even but then the next row did it again. I am new at this and feel frustrated!

I know of two ways to accidentally add stitches. When stitching you are not going into the right space and are scooping up both legs of the stitch OR when starting a new row, you are pulling up to neating the stitch, thereby creating two stitches were there was one. Keep the frist stitch loose with the working yarn hanging down or stitch both loops together to tighten up the first stitch but not make two stitches. you tub has lots of videos on this.

Need some help, think I must be overthinking the first row, seems to me if I put yo. and then p2tog, and keep repeating this, that I am dropping stiches... and that I will not have enough for my width... please help.

You are not in fact "dropping" any stitches, what you are doing is increasing by 1 stitch (the yo) and decreasing immediately with the "P2tog" so, in fact you are maintaining the same stitch count all the way through the pattern while creating a lovely little eyelet pattern on each row. The only way your stitch count will change is if you accidently did 1 stitch without doing the other. Hope this helps. Happy knitting!

cant wait to start this it looks so soft and cuddly
