Baby blanket “diagonal stripes” in green shades

Baby blanket realized in diagonal, from one corner to the other.

I suggest this baby blanket for the beginners because it’s very simple to knit!

You can realize this in every colour (3 or 4 different colours) and you need 2 ball of each.

The stripes can be higher or lower, these are 14 rows.

This measure 50 x 50 cm, 20×20 inches, but you can choose the measure simply by stopping to increse and starting to decrease.

Necessary:

needle n. 4 mm / US 6

 

2 ball for each colour ( min. 6 ball) I used Drops Muskat in 3 different green

I suggest to read all the pattern before begin!

 

Let’s go!

cast on the needle 2 st. with the first colour.

Knit all the rows (garther st.) and increase after the penultimare st, like this:

Row 1 – knit 1, 1 yarn around the needle, knit 1 (3 st.)

Row 2 – knit 2, 1 yarn around the needle, knit 1 (4 st.)

Row 3 – knit 3, 1 yarn around the needle, knit 1 (5 st.)

Row 4 – knit 4, 1 yarn around the needle, knit 1 (6 st.)

Row 5 – knit 5, 1 yarn around the needle, knit 1 (7 st.)

Change the colour every 14 rows.

When one of the edge measures 50 cm (20 inches) knit 2 rows without increase and begin the decrease like this:

Row 1 – knit 1,  slip one, 1 knit, pass the slip stitch over, knit until the end of the row.

Row 2 – knit 1,  slip one, 1 knit, pass the slip stitch over, knit until the end of the row.

 

Continue until you have only 3 st. InstagramCapture_67202e5e-3b81-4187-8d6d-b3a8f8313b21on the needle.

Cast off the st.

 

Finish!
