Knit Baby Blanket

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.
