Baby’s First Security Blanket – Free Knitting Pattern

This is a knit pattern I did a while back for Knit 1-2-3 (no longer in publication) for Baby’s First Security Blanket.  The design is  in support of Newborns in Need, which distributes items free of charge to babies in the United States.

BABY’S FIRST SECURITY BLANKET

designed by Carrie Carpenter

 

SKILL LEVEL: 1 = beginner

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Blanket measures about 15″/38cm wide x 14″/35.5cm long.

YARN: Worsted weight baby yarn (acrylic), 2 balls (about 265 yd total).  Sample made using 2 balls #5107 Tide Pool  Deborah Norville Serenity® Baby from Premier®Yarns.

NEEDLES: Size US 10 (6mm)

ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: Yarn needle

GAUGE: Gauge is not critical for this project.

 

DESIGNER’S TIPS

  1. For a larger blanket, cast on more stitches. If making a significantly larger blanket, more yarn may be required and you may wish to work back and forth on a circular needle, as if working with straight needles, to accommodate the width of the fabric.
  2. This is a fun project for a self-striping or self-patterning yarn.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 60 sts.

Work in Garter st (knit every row) until piece measures about 14″/35.5cm from beginning or desired length.

Bind off.

 

FINISHING: Weave in ends.
