I think you could adapt any blanket pattern you like.
Work to desired size, and place large button hole where you need the buckle slit to be.

I just finished one a few months ago. Here's my pattern for it in a previous thread. I think there's a picture of it in there somewhere.

Okay, here's the pic. It will be the rainbow blanket in this photo array.

I forgot to add that the size 10 needle is an American size. For the UK, this would be a 6mm. Sorry I can't help you out with the dimensions. I fell asleep in math class when they were talking about metrics. lol 2.54 centimeters equals one inch, right?
