An Easter Gift Pattern from Regina

REGINA,  wrote out her blanket pattern for us as an Easter Gift!

BASKET STITCH from  an old donated paperback book:
Knitting dictionary of 800 stitches patterns, Crown publishers, inc.
Donated yarn. Soft 4 ply
Needle size 10 round 29”
Cast on multiple of six
Rows 1 and 7: K
Rows 2 and 8:P
Rows 3 and 5: * K1, P4, K 1*
Rows 4 and 6: * P1, K4, P1*
Rows 9 and 11:* P2,K2, P2*
Rows 10 and 12: * K2, P2, K2*

CIRCULAR 29” needle, size 10.
Cast on whatever you want in multiples of 6.  I cast on 120 stitches.
Note: When I am making special items for the needy or hospice patients, I just keep knitting until all the donated yarn is finished, leaving enough yarn make a good wide edge with a single crochet stitch.  If I have only enough yarn for a square, it has become a baby blanket; if the finished piece is very long, it becomes a prayer shawl for women or prayer blanket for men in our local hospice, JOURNEYCARE.  A medium size piece could be given to a toddler+ for cuddling during naps!  God is in the details.  I am merely His hands on earth.

And this is my wake up view.  Green green green grass and a touch of a blue  sky with promises of a beautiful Easter weekend.

If you have a short week for Passover or Easter, I hope you get some good knitting time in!  You are all a blessing to me.

  1. That is a lovely blanket pattern, and it has a nice heirloom feel to it.
    Knitting for charity is such a wonderful thing to do. I like sending items to the Pine Ridge Reservation.

  2. That blanket looks perfect! I think lacy blanket are dangerous because the baby’s fingers can get tangled in the lace; my younger son’s fingers got tangled in some long hair during a nap (toddler and new baby — no time to vacuum) and was lucky I found it before the *tourniquet* did damage. This one looks safe and very squishy, perfect for a floor blanket.

  3. I knit a blanket just like it for my first grand in blue. It’s a great pattern and I loved how it was the same on both sides.

  4. I spent quite some time last night looking on Ravelry and other places online trying to find this or a similar pattern. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Regina for being so generous and sharing it with us all. This will make some lovely blankets for my charity projects.
    I’m wishing you all a most blessed and Holy Easter weekend. Blessings always, Betsy
