Baby Blanket and Wash Cloths

I recently knit some baby wash cloths for friends of ours and ended up with LOTS of left over yarn ; well, enough to make a little blanket anyway.


I made the pattern up as I knit - I was too tired to have to mark rows and such. So, coming up with my own pattern was the easiest way to relax and avoid reading a pattern.

 It is easily broken down into 8-row repeats.

row 1: k2 , * k2tog, yo * rep until last two sts, knit 2

row 2: and all other even rows - purl

row 3: k2 , * k2tog, yo * rep until last two sts, knit 2

row 5: knit

Row 7 : knit

I also put in a random lace pattern that I found in a knitwear magazine.
