I lost the link to the pattern, but thankfully I'd wrote it down...!

It's done using 10.5 or 11 size needles. I used some white double knit yarn. 116 or 120 sts (I used 120)

You begin with 10 rows garter St.

Row 1: K7, P until 7 sts left, K7
R2: K
R3: K7, P, K7
R4: K
R5: K7, P, K7
Rows 6-10: K

Repeat Rs 1-10 14 times but end on R5...

10 rows garter St

Cast off.

Ta daaa!! Sorry for not having the link :aww: Hope it's ok to share though?

Nice job! Reminds me of a blanket my son had when he was a baby.

I'm not doing too badly huh! lol! I did knitting in primary school, but only very small amount of it, and that was approx 16 yrs ago (Gawd I feel old!). I'm amazed at how easily I picked it up again. But it's thanks to a fantastic beginner (kids!!) book I picked up at a craft show.

And... now DH & I just need to conceive the baby for it lol!
