Baby Blankie

A simple square baby blanket pattern. I used Bernat Soft Boucle and 7mm needles. The main section is worked in garter stitch. Ruffle border has mitered corners and is worked in the round in stockinette stitch with a garter border. Enjoy!

Materials
2 balls (466 mts) Bernat Soft Boucle
7mm needles
7mm circulars 47″ length for border
4 stitch markers (1 unique)

Gauge(not crucial)
11 stitches x 22 rows in garter stitch = 4 inches

Measurements
approximately 30″ x 30″

Abbreviations
K = knit
P = purl
SL1 = slip one stitch
PM = place marker
PUM = place unique marker
KFB = knit into front and back of next stitch
SLM = slip marker

Instructions

Main panel:
Cast on 62 stitches.
Row 1: SL1, K to end

Pick up and knit 124 stitches along cast off edge, PM,
Pick up and knit 124 stitches along side, PM,
Pick up and knit 124 stitches along bottom, PM,

      When knitting garter stitch, more rows are needed to create a square than if you were knitting stockinette stitch.
