EASY BABY BLANKET (Dishcloth Baby Blanket)
I use DK weight yarn and US 7 or 8 needles for this baby blanket. It can also be done in a chunky baby yarn using US 10's. I made it once with Baby Clouds and it came out really nicely (picture attached). The picture is the blanket knit with Baby Clouds. It is soft and cushy and a bit on the fuzzy side. The colours look like the blanket is part of a rainbow.
Gauge is not important.
CO 4 sts.
Knit across first row.
Next row (and every row thereafter until it measures the sized square you require): K2, yo, k to end of row.
Once you have the blanket at the size you want your square blanket to be...
Next row (and every row thereafter until you are at 4 sts again): K1, K2tog, yo, K2tog, k to end of row.
Once you reach 4 sts on the needles again,
Next row: k across row.
Cast off. Weave in ends.
If desired, string a 1/4" satin ribbon in and out through the eyelets and tie a bow or knot at each corner of the blanket.
Happy Knitting and good luck!
