I call this a carriage blanket because it's a little smaller than a crib blanket. Perfect for a bassinet or carrier.
It's a simple and very easy to knit baby blanket using Bernat Baby Blanket yarn. I used 3 skeins and size 15 needles, working in a stockinette stitch with a garter stitch edging.
Cast on 48 stitches. Knit each row until there are 3 ridges. Then knit 2 stitches and purl until the last 2 stitches. Knit next row. Repeat last two rows until blanket is about 29-30" long. Knit last rows until there are 3 ridges. Cast off and weave in ends.
Since the yarn is bulky, it works up quickly. Makes a great shower gift.
