Super Easy and Fluffy Baby Blanket
After making this blanket countless times for friends and family I've decided to share the pattern with others, because it's so easy that even someone who has just learned to knit can do it!
4 skeins of Red Heart Baby Clouds yarn in color of your choice. (Each skein should be 140 yards. If using a variegated color of Baby Clouds you will need to get about 5-6 skeins because those only have 105 yards.)
Size 10 circular knitting needles or size needed to obtain gauge.
My blanket measured at 36 inches by 44 inches when I was done.
There is no right or wrong with this pattern so don't worry if yours comes out different.
Gauge: 3 stitches = 1 inch
CO 85 Sts
Knit every row until you have gone through most of your yarn. Make sure to leave enough to bind off with.
This will knit up very quickly and you will be left with a very nice, fluffy blanket that is just right for those cold winter nights of cuddling with your baby. It's also nice as a play mat for when you don't want your baby playing on a hard floor.
Every time I've given one of these as a gift, the mother always wants to keep it for herself instead of giving it to the baby.
Also this yarn is very forgiving, so if you accidentally knit some of the fibers from other stitches together don't freak out! No one will notice because of the bulkiness of the yarn.
If you've made a variation to this pattern feel free to contact me so I can post it!!
Happy knitting :-)
