I loves a easy baby blanket and this one is an absolute breeze to knit. You can ritz it up by using posh stitches are you can keep it simple like I have and use garter stitch!
You can be fancy and buy some lush chunky wool or you can be thrifty like I have and use odds and sods from your knitting basket doubled up!
And in all seriousness if you find yourself in a tight spot you can bust one of these out with like a day of solid knitting!!!!
Anyway here's a brief tutorial on how to make this blanket.
Garter Stitch Diagonal Baby Blanket
*Use 6mm needles
*Use chunky wool or two strands of regular wool
*Cast on 3 stitches
*Work each row in garter stitch increasing 1 stitch at the end of each row
*Continue knitting in this manner until one of the shorter edges of the blanket is the width you would like your blanket to be
*Now decrease 1 stitch at the end of every row until only three remain.
*optional* crochet a border
In other news! Boy was it freezing this morning! I honestly felt like my toes might drop off!
I am however wearing a pretty snazzy new make in the hopes of photographing it later so that cheered me up!
And I posted a new video this week of what I'm planning on making in December!
Obviously though I've not included Christmas presents because that would ruin the surprise!!!!
