Scrappy, Cuddle Blanket


Garter-stitch is becoming a new love of mine, especially for baby blankets,  as it is thick and cuddly.

This scrap blanket was knit on US size 11 needles with double strands of yarn, one light and one dark. The blanket will be donated to a local charity along with the Gradient Garter Blanket shown in an earlier post.


Have you knit anything in garter stitch recently?

  1. I've been knitting hats in the round so my garter stitching is not happening. I DID, however, teach my DIL to knit and started with the garter stitch.

  3. I haven't worked on a garter stitch piece for a while, but I like the ease of it too. The blankets are so cute - and look very soft and cuddly.

  4. I do call myself a newbie with regards to knitting but the garter stitch will always be my favorite. Very nicely done and colors chosen are beautiful. You've done a great job.

  6. They are adorable!

    Even though it doesn't *look* like garter, plain vanilla socks are basically garter stitch (as you knit every row). So, yes, I do garter. ;-)

  12. I really like to knit in the round, because it's usually garter stitch the whole time.
