I call this my "5-15". It's all garter stitch. All you do is change the needle size every 7th row. You need 5 and 15 needles...7 rows no. 5 needle and 7 rows no. 15 needle. If you want to work a little faster you can use a 7 and 15 needle. When finished, crochet around blanket. It will be all ruffly. I made three of them in white and then when I found out what the baby was, I trimmed the ruffle part in either blue or pink. Cast on about 120 sts. and go from there.

Wow! What big needles!! Hmmm, may have to try that as it would be fantastic to have a pattern you could knock out in a day or two!! Any pics?

I didn't have a camera when I made it (them). I made one 32 years ago for my daughter, and then about 10 years ago for my daughter's friend. It makes a very thick, cushy blanket. I used mine for all 3 kids and then passed it on.

I made this pattern in a full sized afghan in about three weeks. You could probably make a baby sized one in a week or less. It's a very easy pattern, but it is still very pretty.

I actually didn't use the pattern in the link though. Leisure Arts' book called Quick Knit Afghans has the full sized version.

I'm doing a feather and fan with worsted weight yarn that's working up pretty quickly. I need mine done by the beginning of November, too

How are you feeling, BTW?

I finished my first knitted afghan earlier this year and wanted something simple to start with so did a basketweave using 3 shades of yarn and changing every 4 rows. It was so easy to remember, k4,p4 for 4 rows then p4, k4. I was also using up some yarn that I didn't have enough of one color to make a sweater and it was too bulky for a lot of other uses.
