And since it looks like she's knitting one only one strand, what size needles?

Could it be finger knitting? :?? You could probably do a few strips and seam them to make a blanket :shrug:

I know all it is, is a 24x24" square and it's probably knit on large needles but i'm not sure which stitch or how big the needles need to be

If it's finger knitting, you don't need any needles. It's all done with your fingers. Here's a link from knitty that explains it:

I've experimented with drop-stitch and lace-type patterns on 15's or 17's using worsted with similar, open loose results. She may be using those huge Jiffy-type needles.

Any stitch looks completely different done on way-too-big needles, even a seed stitch looks kind of cool like that. Sort of like netting or something.

I doubt that it's finger-knitting, though.

That's not knit at all. It's crocheted.

I agree with cristeen, it looks like solomon's knot crochet stitch.

If you look on her Etsy store, it looks knit. Here's the link...http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9390088.

You should also check out yarndex.com to look at super bulky yarns. I found a number that require size 19 needles.

If you figure out how to make one, let me know. My boyfriends brother and SIL are expecting a baby in April. I've already started a baby blanket, but that is really cool.

Ya know, the more I look at it the more I think she does it on a 24" loom. That would involve crochet hooks if need be.:think:
I should clarify huh? A knitting loom thingamabob.

Whatever they are, they look really cute and cosy.

I think the one the OP was looking at was the crochet one, though. The knit cocoons have a tighter gauge than the open, loopy crocheted ones.

They are both lovely!
