Double Basketweave Blanket
A beautiful Baby Blanket that is easy and quick to make. Stylish and cozy, this blanket looks really expensive, but costs only a few dollars to make. I've called the pattern 'Double Basket-weave' because the design is different and gorgeous on both sides. The effect is very textured and three-dimensional - it's derived from aran knitting which I really love because it reminds me of home!
This is a great knitting pattern for an improving beginner, but also satisfying for an experienced knitter. Captivating in its simplicity, I should warn you that it may keep you knitting all through the night!
Instructions are including for making your own custom size blanket.
The Double Basket-weave Blanket knits up in no time with no fancy stitches and no shaping involved.
The only stitches involved are Knit and Purl! Some experience of reading patterns will help, but the terms used are simple and everything is explained beforehand.
The sample was knit in Robin Aran. A substitute yarn is shown below.
