Thanks alicelovester! It definitely tested my patience! If I ever make another it will be in a long time. I like quick projects in general, more instant gratification, ya know? But the feeling when I finished this was fantastic. Smiley

Sorry I didn't see this til now. That part confused me too, I had to get my grandmother to explain Tongue The even rows are basically the opposite. So if the first row is knit 7 purl 1, the next row is purl 7 knit 1, kwim? But the first 4 stitches (and last 4) are always knit no matter what row you're on.

So to sum it up, knit 4 slip marker, p7, k1 across for the second row.

If my explanation doesn't make sense than let me know! And I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner, I know it is frustrating when you want to do something and you have to wait ! haha.

Well done!

My first knitting project was a scarf and it was so hideous I never wore it out in public. Dropping stitches and making mistakes is part of the game, it gets better with time and once you know how to fix them it's much less of a crisis Smiley Congrats on your first projects!

Your first scarf looks better than the first scarf I knitted (trust me, it was really bad) and that blanket is beautiful! Thanks for sharing the pattern, I'm stashing it away for the next time I need to knit a baby blanket. Would you mind sharing what yarn you used and how much you needed for this pattern? Please? Thank you!

Second, I used bernat baby sport (pretty sure that was the name..) and it was a 280g ball and I used about half- so around 140g. Make sure to post if you make it!
