FREE KNITTING PATTERNS : Very Easy Diagonal Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern

Free Knitting Pattern for Diagonal Baby Blanket from Fabulousyarn
Shown in pink and white blue sky alpaca sport baby alpaca, doubled up and knit together


Designed by FabulousYarn.com
Skill Level: Super Easy beginner
Tools: You'll need a super long circular for this - not to knit in the round, but simply so that you have enough space for the amount of stitches you will be knitting.

This pattern works with any yarn, of any gauge - we've made it with Twinkle, soft chunky, and we've made it with Artyarns Regal silk and Jade Sapphire Cashmere. You will have to do the math to figure out how much yarn you'll need. What does this mean? You'll need to knit a swatch and then based on that calculate how many skeins of whatever fiber you want to use you will need.

The basic concept is that you start at one corner with three stitches - and increase the number of stitches on each row until you have the diagonal length for the size blanket you want (the math to figure out how many stitches you need to end up with is in the pattern). Then you begin DECREASING. The edging detail is very simple - you simply do a yarn over before the last two stiches on every row, which creates an eyelet pattern.
This pattern also works as a shawl pattern
, depending upon the fiber you use - you simple stop knitting when you get to the width you want - and it becomes a shawl.

See Blue Sky Alpacas Baby Alpaca Sport Weight Yarn (you'll need eight - four of each color to do a candy stripe version like the one pictured)
