    Just wanted to clarify before I start this really pretty pattern using my fav yarn to date, Sugar&Cream, you purl 3 knit 3 for 3 rows then switch to knit 3 purl 3 for 3 rows & continue til finished. I was ready to begin by knitting exact as I read but knew that wouldn’t come out like yours so I just wanna make sure I’ve got this. Thank you :)!

    Hi Heidi,
    Gorgeous blanket, I really like the colours!
    However, shouldn’t the pattern be
    rows 2-4 P3,K3
    rows 5-7 K3,P3?
    Otherwise you get stripes instead of basketweave (well I did when I tried it out on 9 stitches in a row rather than 90)? If rows 2-4 and rows 5-7 are the same you could just write Every row P3, K3.

    You used the Sugar N Cream yarn that a lot of dishcloths are made of? Just wondering, don’t the colors run and the blanket wind up stiff after washing? Thank you!

    Hi! I’m kinda new to knitting and I’m still super confused. The other website you referenced has this pattern, which seems weird to me. Why would row 4 and 5 both start with knitting? Are they doing 3X4 little rectangles instead of 3X3 squares?

    Row 1: P3, *k3, p3; rep from * to end
    Row 2: K3, *p3, k3; rep from * to end
    Row 3: P3, *k3, p3; rep from * to end
    Row 4: K3, *p3, k3; rep from * to end
    Row 5: K3, *p3, k3; rep from * to end
    Row 6: P3, *k3, p3; rep from * to end
    Row 7: K3, *p3, k3; rep from * to end
    Row 8: P3, *k3, p3; rep from * to end

    Love this! An old friend made my first baby a blanket with this pattern. I just started knitting a little bit a year ago and didn’t think it was a pattern I could do! Your instructions are easy to follow and I can do K and P easily so I can’t wait to try making this.
    My question, being new to knitting, can I use thicker yarn (like a super bulky) with bigger needles and make a bigger, thicker blanket for my bigger kids? Does knitting work that way? :) Thanks for the pattern!!!!

    I couldn’t wait to try this pattern and in this yarn. BUT! What seemed to be a “do it with your eyes closed” pattern turned out to be a bit mystifying. Please can you clarify once and for all? Shouldn’t the pattern be:

    row 1 knit across
    row 2 k3, p3 across
    row 3 & 4 p3, k3 across

    or maybe
    row 1 knit across
    row 2 p3 k3
    row 3 & 4 k3 p3

    I am confused!

    I finished the baby blanet last night and popped it in the mail today. I hope the recipient likes it as much as I did!

    Now, as to the person who wanted to use a bulkier yarn, how about just worsted? I need to use size 8 needles, but don’t know how many stitches to cast on. Maybe 180? Although that pattern might get a bit repetitious for that many, don’t you think?

    I’m completely confused. So is every row purl3 knit 3? Row one is knit.

    What is the length of the circular knitting needles you used?
