This lovely baby blanket combines a simple design with a beautiful look to make the perfect gift for the newborn (and new parents!) in your life. Unlike other patterns in a standard checkerboard layout, this one has instructions for two different weights of yarn (DK and worsted) and two different sizes. The “half” blanket is 20in by 30in (50cm by 75cm) and the “whole” blanket is 30in by 40in (75cm by 100cm).
Gauge in DK weight is 22 stitches and 32 rows to make a 4in 10cm square in stockinette stitch on US6 (4mm) needles. Gauge in worsted weight is 18 stitches and 28 rows to make a 4in 10cm square in stockinette stitch on US9 (5.5mm) needles.
This pattern replaces the Checkerboard Baby Blanket from Knit with KT; it is in two weights and two sizes, and has been test and tech edited.
