What’s better than chunky baby legs…how about chunky baby legs wrapped in a cozy knit blanket! This blanket is great because it’s a very quick knit with the super chunky yarn and big needles. I knit this blanket in a few evenings during my last days of pregnancy, so looking forward to the sweet baby boy that would soon by wrapped in it. This yarn is so soft and cozy.

Yarn.. Sirdar big softie in Meringue, 196 yards
Needles.. US 36 20mm circular knitting needles
Measurements.. Approximately 36″ x 36″

Cast on 45 stitches. Knit in seed stitch k1,p1 until you have just enough yarn for binding off. That’s it!

  1. I love this blanket! I just finished it, however it turned out to be rectangular and not square. Do you know the reason for this? I triple checked that I got the right supplies, and it still didnt measure up. Any thoughts? If I redo it should i cast on 40 stitches instead of 45?

    Thanks!

    1. I am a rather ‘tight’ knitter so it may work better for you to cast on less stitches. Or maybe you could block it? I think it would work perfectly fine to leave it rectangular also. Glad you love the blanket!

  2. Love the blanket. I am new to knitting and think I could do this. Can’t find the Sirdar yarn here in Eastern Washington state. Wondering what would be an equivalent.

    1. k1, p1 means knit one stitch, purl one stitch. This pattern is called the seed stitch. Try watching a YouTube video, I find that to be very helpful when I’m learning a new stitch!
