Squares Baby Blanket

I love knitting baby blankets.

I hope you like this one - it's easy to knit, and a great gender-neutral design !

There are a variety of sizes - see below 

Small Size:

Width:         ~        16.5”

Length:        ~        17”

You can change the size of your blanket by adding or reducing in multiples of 9 stitches (90 +/- multiples of 9)


Here are some suggestions ~

For a doll / small preemie baby blanket of 16.5”                    Cast on 90sts

For a preemie baby blanket of 18”                                         Cast on 99sts

For a newborn baby blanket of 21”                                        Cast on 117sts

For a newborn baby blanket of 24.5”                                     Cast on 135sts

For a baby blanket of around 28”                                          Cast on 153sts


Length ~ Make your blanket square, or a little longer than it’s width.



22sts = 4” (10cm)



Around 90 - 100g of DK yarn for the smallest size, up to 350g for the biggest size 

4mm needles  



Cast on 90 stitches (or the number of stitches for the size you wish to knit as suggested above)

Start with a garter stitch border - knit 10 rows


1st Row:       Knit

2nd Row:      K6, (p6, k3) 9 times, p6, k6

Repeat the 1st and 2nd Rows 3 times more

Rows 9 - 14: Knit

Rows 1 – 14 form the pattern - repeat pattern rows (1 - 14) 9 times more ~ or until your blanket is the length you desire.

For bigger sizes ~ repeat until your blanket is square or a little longer than it’s width. Always end after completing a row 14.

Finish with a garter stitch border – knit 5 more rows

Cast off knit wise
