Car Seat Blanket Pattern
Ok it is too hot today to do anything outside. It is already over 90 degrees here outside of Hot’lanta (Atlanta, GA) it is supposed to hit a high of 96 today. So I think I will stay inside and finish the baby blanket that I started on Thursday. I have started to make small car seat blankets for my friends babies. The blankets are made to fit the width and a little longer than the length of the car seat. Supplies #15us (10mm) 29” (73.5cm) circular needles 2 balls of Caron 6oz. Simply Soft Brites (Berry Blue) 1 ball of Caron 6oz. Simply Soft Brites (Blue Mint) This is the length of the blanket. Pattern is as follows: CO 100 stitches with all three yarns held together as one. Rows 1-3 knit every stitch Row 4 k3, p, to last 3 stitches and then k3 Row 5 Knit Repeat rows 4-5 until you have approximately 20 inches (this is the width of the car seat plus 4 inches). Then repeat rows 1-3 Bind off. This is a very quick and inexpensive baby gift that is practical. Having two children I should know because I remember struggling with a large blanket that would not stay in place and cover the baby in the winter so this is the reason behind this pattern.
