ePattern: Planted Fields Blanket
Available as a downloadable PDF
This baby blanket by Angela Steffen is made on any of the 3 sizes of small afghan looms: 3/4″ 60 pegs: Small Round Afghan Loom; 5/8″ 75 pegs: Small Round Afghan Loom; or 1/2″ 90 pegs: Small Round Afghan Loom.
Ending size of blanket is about 28inches by 30 inches (pattern could be repeated to make a 60 inches long blanket to fit a toddler bed).
The nine vertical and horizontal squares remind me of the planted fields in Iowa, where I live. The blanket is made as a single panel--no sewing together of the squares required.
Skills required are: Ewrap, Purl, Slip stitch edge, loose Basic Bind off.
Optional: add a crocheted border, loomed icord border, or loomed 10 stitch border.
Depending on yarn and loom, you will need about 3 skeins of worsted weight or bulky 5 yarn.
I also used 4 rubber bands (as stitch markers), and a tape measure/ruler.
