Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is one of my favorite patterns because I can just knit and knit and knit. it also seems to go really quickly when it is on the diagonal for some reason. I would highly recommend it for a beginner.

This is a classic diagonal knit blanket pattern, here updated with bulky/chunky yarn and big needles. I have made this much smaller (preemie blanket size) using worsted weight yarn and size 7 needles. As commented below, this same pattern is used with kitchen cotton yarn to make dish cloths or wash cloths.

I would like to make this rectangle instead of square. Is that possible? This is my first attempt at an afghan. I am making it for my new granddaughter and would like it a little bigger.

This pattern creates a square, not a rectangle. To make it bigger, you must make a bigger square by adding more stitches than the 90 listed in the directions. You will end up with a bigger square. I hope that helps!

Very pretty. Would also be beautiful in a variegated or self-striping yarn in colors to complement the nursery. A basic pattern that every knitter should have in her collection.

Leave a comment... Hello Can someone please tell me how to save this pattern. I cannot find the save button anymore Thank you

If you can knit a diagonal washcloth you can knit this comfortable baby blanket. The knitting will go fast with the super bulky yarn and its sure to become the child's favorite "blankie". The size is easily adaptable, just remember its a square and you only need to measure the length of one side to determine how big it will be. This one looks like it will be about 36" square at 10 stitches = 4"

This was so easy and adorable to make! And this was my first blanket and I'm so pleased with the results

I woulda like ADULT size directions for the Still River Blanket

Adult size would be easy, just continue with the pattern until you are happy with the size before you start the decrease. so, instead of working to 90sts on the needle, you would work until say 300 or 350 or whichever number makes you happy with the size. My knitting group and I have been making dozens of these blankets for years for our local humane society and animal rescue groups.

I'm not sure I want my baby to be "floating on stagnant water"!

Oh dear! It seems multiple people don't appreciate the usage of the word "stagnant" in this description. For the record, "stagnant" can mean either still and unmoving, or fouled from being still. Because of this confusion, I'll go ahead and change the wording. Happy knitting!

thank you for this pattern....Simple but beautiful!Have you tried this craft? What did you think?

The people who need to look up the word "stagnant" are the people on here, the word stagnant was correctly used in the original description, but I see all free knitting changed the description to appease the under educated on this site. Such a shame that people who work so hard to provide such a wonderful site for all of us to use should be treated so poorly all the time!

Ummm.... I'm loving the blanket but somebody on your team better look up the word stagnant... Oops!

Hey there gramiesusie 3623842! We used "stagnant" in this case for the definition of still and unmoving, not for the definition of foul! Though that is very funny! We're glad you like the pattern regardless, and happy knitting!
