Super easy and fun baby blanket!
 
I got this pattern (in the oral tradition) from my SIL. It's very easy, very fun (mindless) and turns out reallllly pretty.

Cast on in any multiple of 8 (I cast on 160).
Work in seed stitch (k1, p1/p1, k1) for 8 rows.
The first 8 stitches and the last 8 stitches of each row should be done in Seed Stitch (see above).
Row 9-16: (after 8 stitches of seed stitch) *K8, P8 - repeat from * to final 8 stitches which you will work in seed stitch. Continue in this pattern for 8 rows.
Row 17-24: (after 8 stitches of seed stitch) *P8, K8 - repeat from * to final 8 stitches which you will work in seed stitch. Continue this pattern for 8 rows.

Repeat patterns listed above until desired size. This creates a basketweave pattern. Finish the last 8 rows in seed stitch.

Voila!

*edited to correct the pattern to read the first 8 stitches should also be in seed stitch. Thank you Buddha_Mom for pointing out that error!*

That's AWESOME! I haven't found a blankie pattern that would keep me interested long enough, but THAT might do it!

And, how COOL that you are making a BRIGHT ORANGE baby blanket!!

There is also a very quick baby blanket that uses huge needles (an inch in diameter) and four strands of yarn. Similar pattern, fewer stitches. The blocks turn out to be about four inches square, using five stitch increments. Very quick!!

I like your's better, but if you're ever in a hurry. . .

NICE!! :thumbsup:

I saw a pattern in a book at Michael's that looked similar. Instead of a seed st border, the pattern had two repeats of a 4 st basketweave.

What size needles are you using? 10?? Worsted?? Chunky? Do tell ....
