A little bit of sunshine

A little bit of sunshine.

This is a simple and easy pattern. It can be your first blanket... It was mine. The colors are your decision i just chose yellow and white because i didn't know what my mom was gonna was a boy.It was made when he was 14 weeks old and it was perfect for his size then and now he is off the charts for his length and it is still good for him . The dimensions are approx. 36x36
2 Skeins of Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn (Yellow)
2 Skeins of Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn (White)
Color A= White
Color B= Yellow
CO 120 stitches
Row 1-3 Garter or seed stitch (this prevents some curling)
Row 4 K3(or Seed St)P114, K3
Row 5 Knit all
Row 6 Repeat row 4
Row 7 (RS) Join color B
Continue Rows 4 and 5. Every 6 rows switch colors (RS)
Continue until the blanket measures about 34 inches then...
Knit 3 Rows
Bind off Knit wise.I made a matching bib but unfortunately i lost the pattern so I'm sorry.

hey ladies,
I'm not the maker of this pattern, but I know that when using baby yarn one should knitting needles size 2-3 mm you can check and see what size is good for the wool you have by checking the wrapping around your skein of yarn. This is a pretty and simple pattern, but provides a good base to making a blankie, so just follow her instructions once you have the yarn you would like to do.
:) have fun guys!
