Breezy baby blanket

A light cotton baby blanket is perfect for a summer baby. This one is knitted in a light version of the sea foam pattern, wich makes it airy, stretchy and perfect for wrapping your baby. The blanket is knitted in Pickles Organic Cotton DK, wich is perfect for this tecnique, as it is spun from one thick and one very tin ply. Where other yarns would split in the loosely knitted parts, this yarn holds itself together and make the waves look fantastic!

Needles
US 8 20" or longer circular needle

Yarn
300 g Pickles Organic Cotton DK. We´ve put together a lot of different yarn kits to make this blanket.

Gauge
4" = 14 stitches

Pattern
Cast on 96 stitches. Repeat the following 8 rows until you are out of yarn. We made an irregular stripe pattern, but it will look good in one colour too.

Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: K6 *1 YO, K1, 2 YO´s, K1, 3 YO´s, K1, 2 YO´s, K1, 1 YO, k6*
Row 4: Knit, dropping the YO´s off the needle.
Switch colour if you like stripes
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: Knit
Row 7: K1 *1 YO, K1, 2 YO´s, K1, 3 YO´s, K1, 2 YO´s, K1, 1 YO, K6* end last repeat K1 instead of 6.
Row 8: Knit, dropping the YO´s off the needle.
Switch colour

This blanket looks lovely! Can you tell me the finished dimensions? Thanks!

HEY!
Started the blanket the first day it came online. It's really easy! (good for me I'm fresh to the knitting society)
I do think there is an error in the pattern though...
(just looked and it has been adjusted... The printed version I have was missing the K6 in row 7.)

Thanx for the easy pattern! Maybe I'll be ready for the harder stuff soon!

Love, Charlotte from Amsterdam

That´s great Charlotte! You are right about the error, its fixed now :) Thanks!

Yes, I too am wondering about the finished dimensions.

mai 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

It is very stretchy, but about 45" slightly stretched.

What a beautiful pattern!! I just found your website and am very impressed. Thank you so much for listing your patterns for free!! I will be ordering yarn from you in the very near future. It all looks lovely!!!

Got a question for you, I am very new to knitting. Know how to do a dishcloth and thats about it LOL. What does dropping the YOs mean???

august 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTena Helms

It means dropping the yarn over (YO).

Can I ask what the asterisks signify in this pattern. I want to make this blanket for my grandson, and i haven't knit in quite a number of years. Thanks!

august 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie B

The asterisks just tell you the repeating pattern for the row. So with row 3, after you knit the last 6 you would go back to 1 YO and continue the pattern again. And in row 7 the same thing- except you will have only one stitch left and you knit that one. I hope that explains it! Once you get going on it it should make sense. I'm in the process of making this blanket now and I love it, its beautiful!

I would like to knit this for a baby girl, but the colors in the "Pickles organic cotton DK" are all boy colors. Is there another type of yarn that would also be good for knitting this pattern? PS LOVE the blog!!

oktober 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSuzannah

I was wondering after i do the YO do I knit 1 and do another K1 or is it YO K1. YO K2. Thanks for the clarification on this.

oktober 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJanel

Janel, you knit one stitch between each YO. It could also have been written like this:

Row 3: K6 *YO, K1, YO, YO, K1, YO, YO, YO, K1, YO, YO, K1, YO, k6*

I just started knitting and am so excited to have stumbled upon this website. It is so beautiful! I'm going to try this pattern next (it really caught my eye), but in a scarf form in only one color for now. Would you recommend a cast on number of stitches for that? Maybe 48 for a nice chunky scarf?

I also love your yarn colors. And they look very soft. Can't wait to order some. I especially love your oranges and blues, grays and browns. I have not been able to find such colors in stores where I live. Thank you.

I'm confused about row 4 and 8. Do i actually drop the YO off the neddle. I did this and the stiches decreased and it didn't look right. I'm very new to knitting.

desember 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLia

I can knit very simple baby blankets, and this is a pattern I know I can follow. I see what size needle I need, but I don't understand how much yarn to order. Your reply would be much appreciated :-)

desember 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMPB

MPB, you need 6 skeins (each 50 g) We are ordering more cotton these days for summer :)

desember 19, 2010 | Registered Commenterpickles

Hi, I was just wondering if I was doing something wrong. It seems as though my droped YO's arn't as loose as those in the image, as such I don't get a wave through mt blanket. Any advise?

desember 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHayley

Hayley, it is hard to give you any advise as we don´t know what you are doing.. Can you be a little nmore spesfic on what you don´t understand? Thanks :) Remember to do 1 YO, then 2 YO´s and so on as written in the pattern..

desember 27, 2010 | Registered Commenterpickles

I want this pattern but can't get it to print off. What am I doing wrong? Thanks. Send your answer to my email address. carol

desember 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCarol

There is a print link at the bottom of the pattern, try that :)

desember 27, 2010 | Registered Commenterpickles

I did click on the "print" link more than once and nothing happened. That's why I am trying to find out what to do next. Carol

desember 28, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercarol

hi...is it because I need to become a subscriber? I will do that. carol

desember 28, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercarol

Hi, I don´t think taht should be necessary, but try it. We don´t have any control of how the site works/is programmed, so maybe try another browser? It works fine here.

desember 28, 2010 | Registered Commenterpickles

I was just referred to your website by a friend. Love this pattern! It is knitting up so beautifully, although I am fairly new at knitting. I am able to knit in the tail at the first of the color change, but am unsure of how to properly secure the tail from the previous color. I know this will definitely need to go in the washing machine & wouldn't want it to unravel. Thanks!!!
