Knitting – Blanket for Dylan

This past fall, my dear friend Stephanie was pregnant with her first little boy, Dylan, and was due to have him in November. She really wanted to have a hand-knitted blanket for him and I gladly oblidged! You must know, in the past, I have started not one but two blankets for friends pregnant with babies. Those babies are now six and seven and the blankets are 3/4 the way complete sitting in the attic. I was determined to get this blanket done in time of Dylan’s birth or at least before he was one:) AND I DID!! Here’s my beautiful creation:





I have been inspired from my friend Jean – who currently lives in New Zealand – so lucky! She took her yarn out of her loft and organized it so she could easily access it. Stay tuned for my version yarn organization (which will probably closely resemble her’s!).

 

UPDATE!
There have been requests for this pattern. Since I made it up, here you go:

I used a baby yarn – that is softer and not as thick as traditional yarn or wool. I used a size 5 or 6 circular needles.

Cast on 310 stitches.

BEGIN:
Knit 15 rows
on R16:
K10
K3, P3 – repeat 15 times
K10
K3, P3 – repeat 15 times
K10
K3, P3 – repeat 15 times
K10
Do this for 30 rows.
on R47:
Knit 15 rows

If you want to keep all the “boxes” the same, you can just repeat the above. I changed mine up on this blanket. I did 2 “boxes” all knit and 1 “box” perl:
K110
P90
K110
New Row:
K10
P90
K110
P90
K10
Repeat alternating above for 15 rows.

Once this is complete – return to “BEGIN”.

Cast Off.
