Here is a blanket i’ve knit for my new baby grandaughter Lily. It’s a very simple pattern, just cast on 4 stitches and then increase 1 stitch at the beginning of each row until the piece is the required size. Work 1 row straight before decreasing 1 stitch at the beginning of each row until you are back to 4. Then cast off. Simples!
The finished blanket measures 24 inches along each side and has been done using double knitting weight yarn on size 8 (4mm) needles. The colour is a variegated pink/orange mix which sounds odd but took my fancy when I first saw it.
I’ve since realised that it’s probably because I made myself a dress in fabric which was pink with tiny orange flowers when I was a teenager (many years ago)
