Peekaboo is so much easier when you’ve got some eyelets to help you peek! This gender-neutral but still light and lacy blanket packs a lot of movement and texture into a very simple stitch.

If you’ve never done the s2kp stitch (sometimes called sl2-k1-psso) before, you’ll get lots of practice with this blanket. Put the right needle into the first two stitches as if you were going to knit them together, and slip them off the left needle. Knit the next stitch normally. With the tip of the left needle, lift and pass over the knit stitch the two stitches that were slipped. You have decreased two stitches. What makes this stitch special is that the middle of the three “sits” on top of the other two, keeping the line of stitches smooth.

This blanket, like most of mine, is available in two sizes. The smaller size is great for bassinets, carseats, and “lovies.” The full size works great in a crib or as a floor blanket.
