This pattern is available for free.

use any yarn, any needles, any gauge - you decide!

knit corner to corner with a basic stitch pattern to create for a simple + modern look. you can customize this to be larger/smaller by simply changing the yarn + needles. have fun!

** the piece pictured was knit using 3 balls of Cotton Ease using size US 7 needles. see my projects if you’d like the details.

  • EDITED TO ADD - a few items of note, in response to questions that frequently appear in my inbox:
  1. the finished piece is a rhombus/kite shape, not a true square. this is because the piece is knit corner to corner, and my stitches are taller than they are wide. babies aren’t square, so i think this shape works out great!

  2. there was no rhyme or reason to my color changes - i knit with one ball of yarn, then when it ran out, i switched to the next, etc. simple as that :)

  3. when i was about halfway through the 2nd ball of yarn is when i started to decrease. this is because i had three balls of yarn, and wanted to be sure that i would have enough left to finish. you can make yours any size, just start to decrease when you are halfway through however much yarn you are using.

  4. that cotton ease worked out GREAT!

  5. i am sorry, but i do not have a piece of the finished blanket to share because it was gifted years ago. there are lots of images of finished bias blankets on ravelry - check them out for ideas and inspiration!
