Hello there.

I’ve been SO busy in the last couple of weeks that I haven’t had a chance to get it written out.

Happy knitting!

Tri-coloured Diagonal Garter Stitch blanket…

Hello there.

A couple of days ago I posted a picture of a baby blanket on my Instagram account and on my Facebook page.

Since posting it, I’ve had a few people ask me for the pattern, so I decided to write it out for you.

You will need approximately 750 yards of bulky yarn. I used Red Heart Soft Essentials – 250 yards of each colour or 2 balls of each colour if using the Red Heart Soft Essentials.

Cast on 6 stitches with your first colour using US size 10 circular needles.

The blanket is knit flat but you will need the circular needles to hold all the stitches.

Knit across all 6 stitches for 3 rows.

On the fourth row, knit 3 stitches, yarn over, knit the rest of the stitches in the row.

Continue with the fourth row until you have knit all of your first colour and 1 ball of your second colour.

You will now begin decreasing your stitches.

Knit the first 2 stitches, knit the next 2 stitches together, yarn over, knit 2 stitches together, then knit the rest of the stitches across the row.

NOTE: When you change to your third colour, make sure you make the change on the SAME side as your previous colour change.

Continue decreasing until you have 6 stitches on your needle, then knit all the 6 stitches for 3 rows and cast off.

The finished size is approximately 36″ x 36″.

Using the bulky yarn for this blanket makes it super cushy and soft.  Perfect for that baby or toddler in your life!

If you decide to make one, I’d love to see it! 😀

Happy knitting.

It was so fun to make…

Hey everyone!

The Sherbrooke Scarf was SO fun to make, I had to make a second one!

For this one, I used a denim blue instead of the dark grey and added golden yellow pom poms instead of the bright pink!
