Lace Panelled Baby Blanket

Lace Baby Blanket

The blanket centre (without border) measures 31 1/2" square and required 350 grams of 8 ply (DK) wool @ approx 90m (100 yards) per 50gm. You will need extra yarn to work the border and edging, the amount depends on how large you want your finished blanket to be.

Tension

9sts to 5cm over st st on 4.5mm needles. This gauge is after washing so work a largish swatch
and wash it first, or block the blanket to the required size after you've finished.

Abbreviations

inc = increase: knit into the front, then back, of the next st
sl 1 = slip one
PSSO = pass slipped stitch over
yon = yarn over needle
k2tog = knit 2 together

Lace panels (work these where stated in the pattern).

Only count your sts after having worked a whole pattern repeat (ie: 10 rows)

Each pattern repeat is worked over 16 sts.

Cast off.

Border: Pick up 166 sts on each side and work in the round as follows:

Place a marker after each 166th st.

Row 1: Purl

Row 2: Inc, knit to last st before marker, inc, repeat to end of round

Repeat these 2 rows until your blanket is the length and width desired.
Repeat row 1 once more. Cast off, working increase at corners.

You will need extra yarn if you wish to work a border.

Version 2: Cast on 166 sts

Work in lace pattern throughout (no st st panels). This blanket will not be as wide as the first version, but will be as long.
