Hello. I have a wonderful pattern that knits up beautifully. If I knew how, I would post a picture of the blanket that I knitted from this pattern. The pattern is called, "Beribboned Baby Blanket". It can be found at the following website: www.knitlist.com/96gift/giftberibblanket.htm It makes a lovely blanket, and the pattern is not difficult. The ribbon threaded through the eyelets is a lovely touch. I hope you try it. There is another pattern I made recently. It is called, "Angel Baby, Knit Baby Blanket" and it is for beginner knitters. It can be found at www.coatsandclark.com/fun_and_free/yarn/womans_day_mag/lw1417.htm I actually made this one in 2 alternating colors, like stripes, for my niece's baby, to match her nursery colors (pink and chocolate brown). It turned out nice also. Hope you can find these patterns from the links. Happy knitting!!

You can make any number of patterns with only knit and purl stitches. A basketweave stitch is simply knitting whatever number of stitches you like, then purling the same number. Reverse this on the back side. Moss stitch is the same, except it's k1, p1, reversed on the back side.

Check out the Lion brand yarn website. They have TONS of patterns including baby blankets. They also have all levels of difficulty for their patterns. You mighthave to register withthem, but it's free and gives you access to even more free stuff. I get thier news letter and it has some cool free patterns and tips in it too. I hope this was helpful. Good Luck!

WHat about working mostly in stocking stitch then adding motifs worked in extra purlstitches.I've seen very nice blankets done this way, its just a case of drawing what you want on graph paper and using that pattern of plain and purl to bring that out

i think baby blankets are some of the funnest most easiest things to knit when i learned to knit as a senior in high school three years ago i was never taught to read a pattern so with anything that i have ever wanted to make i have always just had to wing and make up off the top of my head i usually just knit the blanket then i go back and just stitch in whatever design that i want on it i think a baby blue blanket with a yellow duck stitched in on it would be a cute design and a light pink with flowers on it for a girl

I bought some wool with a pattern it was basically cast on 150 stitches on size 9 (us) needle. Knit both sides til the blanket is 40 inches long. The wool i found the pattern on was some of the fuzzy baby wool. It makes very nice blankets.

I have a pattern that I used twice. It is very easy, only knit and purl. I can't paste it here, so e-mail me if you wish at scgoose@mchsi.com, and I will send it to you.
