Hi Everyone ,
Here is a feather and fan cot blanket i made for an expectant friend. We do not know the sex of the baby yet so i did it in white.
It measures 31in x 40in, so should keep the baby nicely covered:)

Rita W... I would love to know the pattern of this blanket. And what yarn did you use?

I used a DK weight yarn.
The pattern is , CAst on multiples of 12st

Knit 4 rows and then proceed.
Row 1-- Knit
Row2--Knit 4st,Purl to last 4 st.Knit 4st
row3--Knit 6,* k2tog twice,(yo k1)4 times,(K2tog)twice*RPT from * to * till last 6 st K6
Row 4-- Knit

Rpt rows 1-4 to desired length

Just go as long as you like and then knit 4 Rows before you cast off.

Hope this helps :)

That's a beautiful blanket! What exactly is a cot? Is that like a bassinet?

:thumbsup: It's funny, I was reading a book last night that is set in the UK and she mentioned 'cot' and I was able to figure from context what it was. It's fun learning new words, but sometimes it's confusing. I'm sure it's the same for you or others around the world!

What a beautiful blanket! I love white, but I hardly ever use it. I now have an itch to make it, but I have three other projects going!

Thanks Jen :) You can always start it and do it as an inbetween project . That is what i did . I did a little bit every few days . This way i did not get bored with it .:hug:
