Stripes baby blanket

Knitted stripes baby blanket

My idea to learn to crochet or knitting is to do a baby blanket. It is a big square of yarn which helps you to practice the pattern you want to learn. Is like a big wash cloth.

You can make a baby blanket from leftover yarn or new yarn, any color combination or any pattern combination.

This simple blanket is made out of leftover yarn and in stripes. I always loved stripes. I used 7 different colors and goes great as a Christmas gift for a baby little girl or a boy if he likes the colors.

My boy loves red and he loves this modern baby blanket with pink, purple and blue. I think he likes it because I made it for him.

For this blanket you need knitting needles and yarn. If you don’t have so many colors like I had, you can use less. The stripes don’t have a pattern because I just made them along the way depending on the leftover yarn.


Cast 140 stitches.
With first color knit first row. Purl the second one.
The pattern is very simple: 1 row purl, 1 row knit and then repeat this pattern till you end the blanket. The rule is to change the color when you start to knit a row not when you purl the row.

Because this pattern will curl the blanket I made a border for the blanket. Using a different color for each side I knitted this pattern for 2 sides:
-          Knit2,purl2,knit2,purl2,...
-          Purl2,knit,2purl2,knit2...
You can make the border as wide as you want. For my 2 sides did 10 rows.
For the other 2 sides I knitted 10 (pink) and 6 (yellow) rows because I finished all my yarn.
You can make your border the same if you have enough yarn.

So, here is my stripes baby blanket made with leftover yarn.
Enjoy knitting!
