"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."

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.
Jun 17, 2017
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"

I woulda like ADULT size directions for the Still River Blanket
Apr 01, 2015
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"!
Mar 18, 2015
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?
Apr 01, 2015
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!
Mar 18, 2015
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!
