introduction

About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a new stitch to learn that’s incorporated into a project someone you love can enjoy, you’re in the right place. The stitch in our cuddle knit baby blanket is like a basket weave with a twist. Since we’re using two strands of medium weight yarn at once, it works up pretty fast too.

With this project you’ll get to practice working with a longer pattern repeat, 12 rows, but with simple stitches to help ease you into it. To help you keep track of where you are within the repeat, we recommend using a stitch marker to mark the first and sixth row or if you have the PDF version, making check marks next to the rows you’ve already completed.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We have a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations here on this page as well as written instructions and a tutorial to walk you through our cuddle knit baby blanket from start to finish.

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.

The stitch pattern consists of a 12 row repeat and is worked throughout the project. Many of these rows are similar but it’s best to keep the pattern nearby to guide you. We recommend making a check mark after each row completed to keep track of where you are.
