Simple Blanket Knitting Pattern and Reading


I am knitting a simple blanket - the pattern is just a repeat:
Row1:  Knit
Row 2:  Purl
Row 3:  K1, *K2 tog (3x), [YO, K1] (6x), K2 tog (3x)* Repeat between * to the end, K1
Row 4:  Knit

Keep repeating Rows 1 - 4. 
If you cast on with a multiple of 18, this should work out.  I cast on 236 on size 8 circular needles using Peace Fleece DK weight yarn in Natural and Olive Roots, alternating colors every 4 rows.

I am reading a book that has my attention and kept me reading too late last night.  I guess that is a good thing.

Joining in with Ginny a day late.

  1. Thank you for the pattern and the book recommendation. Any book that keeps a mama up late at night must be good.

  2. Pretty! Can you please tell me what length circular needles you use for an afghan? I have never used them but will give it a whirl! Thanks! Angela

  3. Hi,
    First, I want to thank you for sharing all these patterns with us!!
    I just have a little question;
    Is this blanket pattern will stay ruffle or will it be "strait" when it's being done?
    Thanks again!
    Caro.
    PS: I hope you'll be able to understand my question... I'm French, and not very good in English...

  4. Hi,
    I am using 30". I think 24" would work as well.
    Warmly,
    Tonya

  6. Beautiful blanket! I knit a scarf with a similar wave-like pattern and love it.
