Peachy Baby Blanket

To welcome my newest niece to the world, I did what I do best! I got to knitting and made this blanket. I found this awesome baby blanket yarn at Joann's - Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn. It is super soft and feels like a plush blanket when knit up. I bought 2 skeins of "peachy" and got to work.

I originally intended the blanket to be a square with a target pattern of varying knitting stitches. However, halfway through I realized that I did not have enough yarn or time to finish the entire blanket. I edited the pattern to be a rectangle as diagrammed below. It still ended up plenty large enough for the new little one measuring in at approximately 48" by 32". I used a 29" size 10.5 needle to hold all the stitches.


  1. Hi, I'm knitting this pattern and would like to connect to it on Ravelry. Do you have an account there?

    1. Hi Lisa, I am "heidiarjes" on Ravelry. I haven't published this on Ravelry yet (as it is more notes than an actual pattern), but I will do that today! Good luck!
