No make that EXTREMELY QUICK - this blanket took all of about 5 hours to make! It's perfect for when that baby suddenly appears from nowhere!

I made it using Plymouth Heaven yarn - very bulky. I used 5 skeins (55 yds each), but it should probably have been 6 skeins and a size US 13 needle. The blanket is 30" square - perfect for a newborn - but much bigger and the blanket's too small.

The pattern - CO 3.
Row 2: K1, YO, Knit to end of row.
Repeat row 2 until half of the yarn is used (or the longest side is the size of the square you want) then:
Next row: K1, K2tog, YO, K2tog, K to end.
Repeat that row until 3 stitches remain then cast off.

How easy could it be??

That does sound easy, looks like the result would also work for Xmas tree decorations as well!

Don't you hate when that happens? And when you check the packaging, the instruction manual is usually missing!
