This is another take on my car seat blanket featuring lace border, tiny butterflies pattern and contoured shape.
I included photographs to support various stages of this blanket project as well as written instructions and charts.
The blanket can be knitted either in one colour or in two - with contrasting border. I used James C. Brett baby DK yarn and used only one skein (pink one). Depending on the yarn brand and length per ball you will need about 300-310m.
I used 3mm needles however if you might used to knit DK yarn with 4mm needles. Please work to your usual gauge for DK.
You will also need tapestry needle to assemble the blanket.
I have written this pattern for your personal use only, which means you cannot resell the pattern nor blankets made using it for financial gain.
FEBRUARY 2020 UPDATE: there was a typo in written instructions to row 7 for the main part, however the chart 1 is correct. The pdf has now been amended and you should have the correct version in your library.

Lovely pattern, easy to follow
The pattern specifies DK yarn. Tension varies depending on /brand and yarn and number of balls needed is reliant on length of yarn in each ball. Without specifying a brand and yarn it makes it more difficult to achieve desired size. As it is a blanket, was easy to adapt the number of stitches and rows to achieve correct tension square. Changing needles to a larger size made the blanket too loose and stitches too large. Baby likely to catch fingers in holes. Easily adapted but needed to work out how to adjust for curve at bottom of blanket and keep the pattern going. Not for a beginner. The end result is very good.
