Cozy Knit Baby Blanket

After the end of a busy week, I thought I’d share a project that I had finished up probably a month or so ago.

A super soft, cuddly, knit baby blanket.

Perfect for a little one to snuggle up with.

Quite honestly, after these last few chilly nights and mornings, I would like a bigger version for ME to snuggle up with.

This is a pretty simple knitting project. I’ll give the basics of this particular blanket.

For starters, I found this squishy yarn (which feels like chenille) at JoAnn’s and snatched it up with the intent to do a baby blanket with it.

I loved this blanket so much after I finished it that I picked up the girly-colored version to make another one for a baby gift.

I used size 13 knitting needles that are fairly long.

Cast on 35 stitches. Knit and purl, just making row after row of stockinette stitches.

That’s pretty much it. Do that until you reach the desired length of your blanket. Mine measures @24″ by 32″ and it only used up a little over half of my yarn.

As far as casting off, or binding off, I would recommend not doing it too tightly. (Mine ended up just a little tight at the one end.)

If you’ve never knit before, here are some links to a little mini-series I did on knitting last winter:

  1. That blanket looks so soft and cozy. I like that you described the yarn as “squishy”. I’m going to have to look for it to make a baby blanket for a friend that’s due in March. Thanks for the inspiration. I’m your newest PInterest follower. Have a blessed week!
