Knit blanket - and I am using this amazing yarn from Lion Brand, but you can use any chunky, number-5 yarn and you will need a knitting needle and the best would be to get circular needles. But I'm just starting this one off on straights and I will transfer it on to circulars later, just because you'll have so many stitches that the straight needles really won't hold it. But you can definitely start on straights and you need about four to five skeins of yarn. Basically, this pattern is so simple because you're going to start here at the corner of the blanket - and you just do simple increases and you work toward the middle of the blanket and then you decrease to the other end.
So when I made it, I started here. Just did my increases. Did some color changes for the striping and then I didn't do stripes throughout the whole thing? I just wanted kind of an accent, but you can do as many color changes as you want and make the stripes. However, you want, but I do have the full pattern on my blog, if you'd like to make this exact blanket so um I'm going to go ahead and I just wanted to show you how this looks once you get a few rows in, but I will start From the beginning, and show you how it's done, okay be right back, okay, so the first thing that we are going to do is we will start with six stitches.
So I've got two three four five, six, so cast on six stitches and the way that I cast on gave me one row of knitting - that's already complete, but we are going to knit four three rows. So I've got my first row done, so I need to knit four two more rows will knit those two rows and I knit continental style. So it looks if it looks different than the way you do it. That's fine snit across these rows, one more row and the knit stitch is the only stitch you need to know for this pattern. It's very easy. Okay, so I've got my three knit rows and now we're going to start the pattern repeat.
So what we will do is you're going to knit three stitches and then yarn over and knit to the end of the row. So it looks like this one two three yarn over, so you take your yarn over like so just knit across the end. Okay - and we repeat that again so knit three one two three then yarn over knit to the end, okay, so you're adding a stitch each time and those yarn overs make the cool little border that you see in the blanket here. So you work that pattern. Just for as long as you want to make your color changes for the stripes, basically do that until you have one side, that's the length of that.
You want to like a baby. Blanket typically might be around thirty-one thirty-two inches. So once you get to the size, you want one side to be, then you will begin to decrease and I will show you how to do that in just a second okay. So for this pattern, once you have a hundred and twenty-nine stitches left on your needle you're, going to start to decrease the other way you can know when it's time to start is when one side is as long as you want for your blanket, then you can Begin to decrease, so I will show you what you do for the decreasing part, and I've just got a little sample here, but you'll have the 129 stitches or, however, many are on your needle at that time. Okay, so what we're going to do is you're going to knit the first two stitches one-two, then you knit two together, this is the decrease.
