This is a sweet little blanket suitable for people new to knitting. The pattern is simple. If you know how to knit a ribbing stitch you can knit this blanket. If you want to make the blanket bigger just add multiples of 16 stitches. Each 16 stitches should add about 5 inches in width. Be sure to buy extra yarn if you increase the size.

If I wanted to use a #8 needle, how many sts should I cast on to make it the size in the original pattern?

It doesn't say how many balls of yarn to buy.

Yes, it does. It says 5 balls, right in the pattern.

Ready to give this one a go.
