Baby Blanket

I am making a blanket for my 18 month old grandaughter. I am using the #6 super bulky baby yarn. What stich should i use for it. I made a blanket for myself different color of course. I done the E wrap and i like it but wanted to do a different stich. Not a hard stich to do. would doing P one row then knitting one row, or would it look nicer if I alternated p1k1p1k1 etc?

baby blanket stitches NEW

Hi there!

Since I din't do baby blankets, really, but use different stitches for other things, I would suggest you go to facebook and search "loom groups."

There are several, very active, very fun, with loads to help and discussion and photos and stitches, vids, and links. All levels welcome!

Off the top of my head, Good knit Kisses, Knifty knitter Loom Creations, etc. There are lots of blankets and baby blankets people are working on, and a ton of other projects. questions & answers and help fly freely!

Also, avail yourself of youtube - start your query with loom nit baby blanket, loom knit stitches, etc. You can also go to goocle images, and search loom knit baby blankets, just to see tons of photos of things that have been made, and get ideas. Often, clicking on the links/pics will take you direct to the page or blog.

Hope this helps, but I highly recommend face kook, where you can connect up with as many loom-a-licious groups as you like. We are all in several!

Hope this helps1

Baby Blanket NEW

I am just a beginner myself. I get bored if I do the same stitch over and over. I am doing the moss stitch. It is a simple knit (k) purl (p) stitch which is good to use with baby yarn because it makes the project look and feel thicker.

row 1: k1, p1 (repeat to the end of row)
row 2: p1, k1 (repeat to the end of row)
Repeat row 1 and 2.
I don't know how this would do with
bulky yarn.

Another stitch is the garter stitch.
Row 1: k to the end
Row 2: p to the end
Repeat rows 1 and 2

Hope this helps.
