Emmie's Blanket




A beautiful shawl-like blanket made with Sirdar's Soft Spun DK and Snuggly White Whispers. You can make this blanket by decreasing the middle section by 24 st multiples and/or not knitting as many repeats for the length. I made the blanket 33in x 39in but you can make it any size you like.

Tension:  22sts

Blanket Pattern:

Cast on 180 sts in Yarn A.(I used Long Tail Cast On, but you can use Cable Cast On too for an even edge.)

Border:  Knit 8 rows (Garter St)

Pattern rows:  First K6 sts and last K6 sts in Yarn A.  Middle pattern in Yarn B.

Row 1:  Knit
Row 2:  K6, Purl to last six sts, K6.
Row 3:  K6, *K2tog x4, (yfwd, K1) x 8, K2tog x8* repeat from * to last 6 sts, K6

Knit 8 rows in Garter St in Yarn A.
Repeat the pattern rows and garter sts approximately 10 times.
