CAT BLANKET PATTERN
This pattern uses a lace pattern with a border of garter stitch all around.
I knit the blankets with Red Heart's Comfort yarn using 4,5mm needles. The amount of yarn used varies on the width and length you make the blanket. I know with the 454g ball of yarn you can knit quite a few of these. A 100g ball of worsted yarn should give you a decent size blanket.
Stitches used :
K : knit
P : purl
yo : yarn over
Cast on a total of 81 stitches.
Knit 8 rows to create border of garter stitch.
Row 1 & 3 : Knit all.
Row 2 & 4 : K5 *Purl* end with K5
Row 5 : K5 * P5, yo, K1, yo *(11 times), P5. K5 You will end up with 103 stitches.
Row 6 : K10 *P3,K5*(11 times), K5
Row 7 : K5 * P5, K3 *(11 times), P5, K5
Row 8 : K10 * P3tog, K5 *( 11 times), K5
K10 Correction from K5 in original. Sorry for the mistake.
Do not count stitches for rows 6 & 7, they will be decreased on row 8.
Repeat the 8 rows until you reach the length you want
If you want to change the width of this blanket you just need to use a multiple of 6 stitches plus 5 for the lace pattern. Add 10 stitches for the garter stitch border.
Here's a detail of what the stitch looks like :
