There are lots of blanket patterns available on the web.
As an aside, it really isn't a good idea to post your email address in a forum. Just read the replies here for answers.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

Thanks mate, but I was really just looking for a simple pattern if anyone knew. I'll just do a google search.

Cheers!

Here is a very easy FREE pattern I have used for 2 baby blankets and one large afghan:
http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/kh...byBlanket.html

Diagonal Pattern Baby Blanket
Lion BrandŽ HomespunŽ GAUGE:
9 sts and 18 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in garter stitch (knit every row) BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
BLANKET
Cast on 5 stitches. Knit 1 row.
Next row
Knit 3, yo, k 2.
Next row Knit 3, yo, k 3.
Next row Knit 3, yo, knit to end.
Repeat last row until there are 126 stitches on needle.
Next Decrease Row Knit 2, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k to end.
Repeat last row until there are 7 stitches on needle.
Next Decrease Row Knit 2, k2tog, k2tog, k to end.
Bind off remaining 5 stitches.
