This is the perfect blanket to make when you need a fast baby gift. Perfect for use in a car seat or stroller! Works up in about 3 hours and can be made into any desired size just by changing the starting chain! This can be made with any type of yarn, any hook size, etc. You design it!
More information, tweaks and other details for this pattern can be found at Deneen's website.
Chain is worked in multiples of 3 + 2
Pattern stitch is: sc/2dc in same stitch
(My version measures about 29" x 32")
14 ounces of worsted weight yarn (For this version, I used 7 ounces of yellow and 7 ounces of white-Lion Brand-Pound of Love yarn.) (I used two strands of the ww yarn held together throughout.)
M/N hook-9 mm
Row 1: Sc and 2 dc (all three in same stitch) in second chain from hook. *Skip two chains and continue sc/2 dc in third stitch(pattern stitch)* across. For last stitch skip two chains and just sc in last stitch, ch 2 and turn.
Row 2: 2 dc in sc from last row (first stitch). Do sc, dc, dc in each sc from previous row (so it's basically skip two stitches and sc, dc, dc in next across). End with one sc in top of turning chain and repeat to desired size. At the end of row 2 and each row thereafter, chain 2 and turn.
Fasten off and weave in ends!
This lays flat, doesn't curl and doesn't need any edging put around it. It does work up beautifully.
