Easy & Colourful Garter Stitch Blankets

April 12th, 2016

It has been holidays here so I thought it would be best to have a project (or two) that is really easy, that I am very unlikely to make mistakes on. With lots of things to do during the holidays and the kids running about I needed something that I could pick up and not wonder where in the pattern I am, I can just pop it down to do something with the family and not worry about finishing a section or losing my way.

I chose to make some baby blankets, I made one with wide stripes in stocking stitch.

These stripes are knitted so the stripes are vertical rather than the usual horizontal (left to right)

I also made one with some leftover yarn, this one is not finished yet.

It is very simple but affective, it is all garter stich with stripes of different colours. I am just changing the colour after two rows making an easy but effective pattern

As I mentioned these blankets are very easy so great when I don’t want to concentrate and they are great to make in anyone’s favourite colours I think this blanket a great project for beginners

They are also so very affective in just two colours
