"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

There's no better way to welcome a new family member than to show your love through a fuzzy, warm blanket. Beginner knitters will adore this Soft, Easy Baby Throw pattern. A basic garter stitch makes up the bulk of this baby blanket pattern, so the most difficult part is increasing and decreasing, but you'll pick that up in no time. Since the pattern is very basic, this is a great project for traveling. You wont need to keep track of charts or cable needles, just knit this cute blanket whenever you have time and you'll be done before you know it.

I am just getting back into knitting and am confused about the last parts of each row. What exactly does k2-6, k3-7 at the end of the row mean? Thanks!

The numbers at the end of the row indicate what the stitch count should be after finishing the row. You are increasing 1 stitch every row for the first half and decreasing 1 stitch every row for the second half. Hope this helps, happy knitting.

I have not knitted for 38 years but decided to learn again as I will be a first time grandma by the end of the month. This pattern is ridiculously easy and I made my blanket in under 2 weeks. Knitting I think is like riding a bicycle. If anything I am more patient now. A beautiful, easy pattern and Easy for my yarn store knitter to get me set up. I did need one more skein of yarn- I left long tails. Weaving in is a new skill.

I love these blankets knit on the diagonal because its so easy to change the size. Just measure one of the straight edges until you get to the size you want. For example 36" means the blanket will be 36" x 36" inches square when you finish. You can also switch this up by using a different weight yarn and needles. Remember the lighter the yarn, the more rows it takes to get it to the size you desire.

If I wanted to make this bigger to use as a throw for the back of my sofa how many stitches would would I have before I start to decrease? I'm a beginner (obviously) :) and the pattern itself is so easy, I love it!
Jul 06, 2014
I've done this and if I remember correctly I went to 300 before I started to decrease. Hope this helps. happy knitting.
