Argyle Knit Blanket

Updated: Jun 15

My Pretty in Pink project is finally complete! Check out my #ArgyleKnitBlanket! Check out my #newest #pattern - #Argyle #Blanket (picture is sized to a #babyblanket)! I worked this one up QUICKLY! I had a deadline, a long weekend, and LOTS of time alone so I made it happen over 5 days! Best part - you all kept me company in the process! This is made with @redheartyarns . Share with your friends to let them know! #HappyKnitting!







This is a small/medium sized lap blanket that works up in a flash. This stitch is worked up in multiples of 8 stitches so the pattern can be adjusted in size by increasing/decreasing in multiples of 8. This pattern will begin and end with a 6-row border and will require pickup along the sides to complete it. The argyle pattern is worked over 16 rows and, once you get the hang of it, is easy enough to recognize the pattern repeat.

Bind off.

Repeat on opposite side. Weave in edges.

Enjoy!
