Beanie Baby Blanket

(Note from Sarah: I knit the sample blanket to gauge with dk yarn on 4mm needles)

This pattern is one I have used for all the grandchildren, nieces, nephews and any other newborns that I have known. It is a very simple pattern and is excellent for beginners. It allows the beginner an easy pattern to follow and at the same time creating something useful to them.

Please note that I have adjusted the size down to Beanie Babies size for this pattern.

Your blanket is now complete.

To adjust the size of the blanket all you have to remember is that then number of squares
across MUST BE an ODD number. And the number of squares up MUST BE an ODD number.

That is it, real simple real easy and you get a great little blanket for your Beanie Babies.
