I Used long tail CO and a Knit BO, so that adds 2 rows of knit, 1 at each end.
It isn't the most readable thing i know, if you put it into Microsoft or Open Office or whatever office suite you use, Word document and double space it, it looks like it'd be easier to see and keep track, but for the sake of space in this post i tried to take that out. Same reason i didn't write in all the even rows since they're all knit rows anyway. Some things to consider, this pattern is how it should be, if you look at the actual blanket i made (you might be able to see in the pics, there are some errors), i didn't write the errors into the pattern for obvious reasons. Also if i could do it over again like i said i would've probably some some cables in it and made the center "block" a bit less simple, nothing crazy though because a lot of the reason i like it is because it's simple (and therefore really quick and easy). Also i would've only cast on 120 stitches and then the center block would've been 10 sts across, it isn't a big deal at this point but in the future that's how I'll do it, as well as probably changing other things so it's all in increments of 5 or 10. Aside from that i like it and like i said i used the Pentex monster ball, i can make at least another one from the same skein, maybe even 2 more blankets, it's good for inexpensive acrylic, has a decent drape and feel, no problem with yarn barf(i think people will know what i mean?), and i since it's acrylic i don't have to worry about giving it to a baby with allergies nearly as much, plus it's machine wash and dry-able.
well that's the first pattern I've ever written and shared with people. enjoy it, and if you use it (especially if you modify it) please post photos of your work! I'd love to see that.
(feel free anyone to use, reproduce, etc this pattern, if you knit something from it feel free to give it away, keep it, sell it, etc. I don't mind at all, and even if I did care the chances of me finding out are slim and even if i did somehow find out there really isn't anything i can do about it anyway so have a blast. happy knitting to everyone.)
