I made this blanket for my brother's friend's expecting sister and, being that I think my nephew is the cutest thing on earth, I used him as a model Smiley Pattern below.



This blanket is real easy and can be used with just about any yarns and can be as wide or short as a person wants. I used size 8 needles, I think, but gauge isn't extremely important.

Foundation - cast on sets of 12 stitches and then add 5. Example - 12 x 8 = 96 + 5= 101 stitches. Depending on the age of the child/person the blanket is being made for you may need to use more stitches. Then purl using color A.

1st Row (color B) - Knit 4. *Slip 1, knit 7, slip 1, knit 3.* Repeat from * until last stitch. Knit 1.

2nd Row (color B) - Purl 4. *Slip 1, purl 7, slip 1, purl 3.* Repeat from * until last stitch. Purl 1.

3rd Row (color A) - Knit 5. *Slip 1, knit 5.* Repeat from * to the end.

4th Row (color A) - Purl 5. *Slip 1, purl 5.* Repeat from * to the end.

5th Row (color B) - Knit 6, slip 1, knit 3, slip 1. *Knit 7, slip 1, knit 3, slip 1.* Repeat from * until six stitches remaining. Knit 6.

6th Row (color B) - Purl 6, slip 1, purl 3, slip 1. *Purl 7, slip 1, purl 3, slip 1.* Repeat from * until six stitches remaining. Purl 6.

7th Row (color A) - Knit 2, slip 1, knit 4, slip 1, knit 1, slip 1. *(Knit 4, slip 1) twice, knit 1, slip 1.* Repeat from * until seven stitches remaining. Knit 4, slip 1, knit 2.

8th Row (color A) - Purl 2, slip 1, purl 4, slip 1, purl 1, slip 1. *(Purl 4, slip 1) twice, purl 1, slip 1.* Repeat from * until seven stitches remaining. Purl 4, slip 1, purl 2.

9th Row (color B) - (Knit 1, slip 1) twice. *(Knit 4, slip 1) twice, knit 1, slip 1.* Repeat from * until last stitch. Knit 1.

10th Row (color B) - (Purl 1, slip 1) twice. *(Purl 4, slip 1) twice, purl 1, slip 1.* Repeat from * until last stitch. Purl 1.

11th Row (color A) - Knit 4. *Slip 1, knit 7, slip 1, knit 3.* Repeat from * until last stitch. Knit 1.

12th Row (color A) - Purl 4. *Slip 1, purl 7, slip 1, purl 3.* Repeat from * until last stitch. Purl 1.

13th Row (color B) - Knit 5. *Slip 1, knit 5.* Repeat from * to the end.

14th Row (color B) - Purl 5. *Slip 1, purl 5.* Repeat from * to the end.

15th Row (color A) - Knit 6, slip 1, knit 3, slip 1. *Knit 7, slip 1, knit 3, slip 1.* Repeat from * until six stitches remaining. Knit 6.

16th Row (color A) - Purl 6, slip 1, purl 3, slip 1. *Purl 7, slip 1, purl 3, slip 1.* Repeat from * until six stitches remaining. Purl 6.

17th Row (color B) - Knit 2, slip 1, knit 4, slip 1, knit 1, slip 1. *(Knit 4, slip 1) twice, knit 1, slip 1.* Repeat from * until seven stitches remaining. Knit 4, slip 1, knit 2.

18th Row (color B) - Purl 2, slip 1, purl 4, slip 1, purl 1, slip 1. *(Purl 4, slip 1) twice, purl 1, slip 1.* Repeat from * until seven stitches remaining. Purl 4, slip 1, purl 2.

19th Row (color A) - (Knit 1, slip 1) twice. *(Knit 4, slip 1) twice, knit 1, slip 1.* Repeat from * until last stitch. Knit 1.

20th Row (color A) - (Purl 1, slip 1) twice. *(Purl 4, slip 1) twice, purl 1, slip 1.* Repeat from * until last stitch. Purl 1.

Keep doing this until the blanket is the desired length. To finish off, I used a crochet border (double crochet - 2 rounds) but if you chose not to just be sure to block your project. This will help with the curling edges.

Thanks for sharing that cool pattern. I like bold colors for babies--and for anyone who's not a baby. My sister's baby boy is coming in August, and I might try to make this. It looks easy enough for my not-so-developed skills.

Definitely try it - it was my first time working with two colors at on once and I was pleasantly surprised that it actually wasn't anywhere as hard as I feared it would be  Smiley
