Glamour-Baby's First Blankie

Lion Brand® Lion® Cashmere Blend


14 stitches across and 22 rows down should measure 4 in. [10cm] in Blankie pattern stitch (the Blankie pattern stitch is Rows 9-28). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Cast on 68 sts.
Rows 1-8 Knit every stitch on every row for a total of 8 rows to make the bottom border on the Blankie.
Row 9 Knit first 14 stitches, purl next 10 stitches, knit next 10 stitches, purl next 10 stitches, knit next 10 stitches, purl next 10 stitches, knit last 4 stitches.
Rows 10-18 Work just the same as Row 9.
Row 19 Knit first 4 stitches, purl next 10 stitches, knit next 10 stitches, purl next 10 stitches, knit next 10 stitches, purl next 10 stitches, knit last 14 stitches.
Rows 20-28 Work just the same as Row 19.
Rows 9-28 form the Blankie pattern stitch. After you finish Row 28, follow the instructions for Rows 9-28 five more times. (In other words, you will have worked Rows 9-28 a total of six times.)

When you get close to using all the yarn in the first skein, you will need to join the second skein as follows: At the end of a row, cut the yarn from the first skein, leaving a long tail. Tie the yarn from the second skein to this tail, again leaving a tail of yarn. You will weave these tails in later. Attach third and fourth balls of yarn in the same way.

When you’ve finished Row 28 for the 6th time, knit 8 rows (knit every stitch on every row) to make the top border.

Bind off all stitches. Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread the tail into a large-eyed blunt needle, and use the needle to weave the tail through the Blankie. Trim end of tail. In the same way, weave in the tail from the beginning of your work and the tails from where the second, third, and fourth balls were joined.

Glamour-Baby's First Blankie Reviewed by Sherry A Lutman on 2011-07-10 ****
What a nice pattern. I have made this in yellow and then in periwinkle. I cast on 128 stitches and used #10 needles. This could become baby's favorite "blankie" and it's nice to have the larger size as they grow.
