"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

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?
