Triple Rib Baby Blanket.

Sophisticated Baby:

A lot of baby blanket patterns out there make blankets that are, well, babyish. If you or a mom you know are looking for something a little more contemporary, this baby blanket fits the bill.

Made from simple 3x3 ribbing (or triple rib), this is a quick knitting project that's perfect for any baby.

It's a smallish blanket that is perfect for the car or stroller or for spreading out for playing on the floor.

  • 4 skeins Lion Brand Jiffy in Dusty Pink (for girl) or Heather Blue (for boy), or 540 yards of bulky mohair or mohair-look yarn
  • one pair size 11 US needles
  • scissors
  • crochet hook or yarn needle

Gauge

About 15 stitches and 15 rows per four inches.

Size

Finished size is 24 inches wide and 30 inches long.

Instructions:

  1. Cast on 108 stitches.
  2. Knit three, purl three across.
  3. Repeat this row until work is 30 inches long.
  4. Bind off.
  5. Cut any excess yarn and weave in ends.
