I have been knitting for about 30 years. When I first began this hobby, I was all about knitting sweaters but I slowly began to realize that it broke my heart a bit when the sweaters I knit weren't being worn (by me or anyone else) when tastes changed or when they were grown out of or for any other reason.  The time investment in knitting a sweater can be significant so you don't want that garment to be relegated to the closet.

So I've transitioned to knitting blankets, washcloths and the like….they don't go out of style, you can't really outgrow them AND they are so much easier to knit than a sweater.

But…I already have a stash of washcloths and have knit a couple of big blankets lately, so when Kate told me that the young lady overseeing Kate's internship was pregnant…Ooooh…I was all…”That's such exciting news…now I can knit a baby blanket!”

And this knit baby blanket couldn't be going to better home. Kate's mentor and her husband are from Italy, only in the US a short time while she works on her PhD, so they really don't have friends and family near by.

When they return back to Italy, the idea that they'll take a little token of love from the US with them just warms my soul.Knit Baby Blanket using Cloverleaf Eyelet Stitch: close up of crochet edge

Kate and I deliberated over a slew of knit baby blanket patterns and ultimately decided on a Clover Eyelet for the body of the blanket. I was pushing for that since I knew I could add a clover border to the blanket as well…and let's just admit that a cute border is the icing on the cake…the cherry on top of your sundae…you get the idea. Yup, the combination of knit & crochet is always a plus for me.

Stitches Used for Knit Baby Blanket Pattern:

Knit Stitches

  • SS – Seed stitch alternates Knit and Purls for every stitch and every row, essentially knitting the purls and purling the knits.  Remember that you will never have a knit on top of a knit or a purl on top of a purl.  Since we have an odd number of stitches our seed stitch pattern will be: Row 1: * K1, p1, K1 rep from * to end of row, Row 2: * K1, p1, K1  rep from * to end of row, Row 3: * K1, p1, K1 ; rep from * to end of row.
  • K – knit
  • P – purl
  •  sl 1 – Slip 1, you simply slip one stitch as if to purl onto the right needle without working it
  •  k2tog – knit 2 together
  •  ssk – slip, slip, knit
  •  yo – yarn over – Bring yarn to front of work just like when you do the purl stitch.
  •  psso – pass slip stitch over – pass the slipped stitch over the worked stitch (the knit 2 together) on your right needle and over the tip of the needle. It's just like when you're binding off stitches

Instructions on How to Knit Baby Blanket:

Gauge: 5 stitches and 7 rows to the inch on size 6 needles using Berocco Modern Cotton, worsted weight

  • Cast on 181 stitches (multiple of 8 plus 5)
  • Knit Seed Stitch for first 3 rows.  (Row 1: * K1, p1, K1; rep from * to end of row, Row 2: *K1, p1, K1 ; rep from * to end of row, Row 3: * K1, p1, K1; rep from * to end of row)
  • 4th row: Seed Stitch for first 3 stitches (K1, p1, K1) and then knit rest of row until the last 3 stitches. Use seed stitch for last 3 stitches of the row.
  • 5th row: Seed Stitch for first 3 stitches (Knit, Purl, Knit) then purl the rest of the row until the last 3 stitches. Use seed stitch for last 3 stitches of the row.
  • Seed stitch the first 3 and last 3 stitches of each row for the rest of the blanket
  • 6th row: SS first 3 stitches, K2, yo, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yo, * K5, yo, sl 1, k2tog, pass slip stitch over, yo, repeat from * to last 5 stitches, K2, SS last 3 stitches
  • 7th row and remaining odd rows: SS first 3 stitches, P all stitches, SS last 3 stitches
  • 8th row: SS first 3 stitches, K3, yo, ssk, *k6, yo, ssk, repeat from * to last 5 sts, K2, SS last 3 stitches
  • 10th row: SS first 3 stitches, K all stitches, SS last 3 stitches
  • 12th row: SS first 3 stitches, K1, *k5, yo, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yo, rep from * to last 9 sts. K6, SS last 3 stitches
  • 14th row: SS first 3 stitches, K7, *yo, ssk, k6, repeat from * to end, SS last 3 stitches
  • 16th row: SS first 3 stitches, K all stitches, SS last 3 stitches
  • Repeat rows 6- 17 until last 3 rows; Seed Stitch last 3 rows.
  • This video will show some of the knitting, specifically, this shows row 12. Even though it doesn't show the other rows, the stitches used to make up the Cloverleaf Eyelet in row 12 will be the same stitches you'll use throughout the blanket.

  • Cast off, but don't cut cast-off yarn.
  • Transfer yarn to a crochet hook.
  • Work single crochet stitch all the way around.
  • Begin to work crochet cloverleaf pattern on the corner:
    • Cloverleaf: single crochet, then immediately chain 3 and single crochet into the first stitch of the chain. Chain 3 more and single crochet into the first stitch of the chain. Chain 3 more then single crochet into the first stitch of the chain. (So you chain and work into the first stitch of the chain 3 times for each clover).Work a slip stitch into the stitch that you crocheted the original single crochet in. The video below will help illustrate.
    • Single Crochet into the next 3 stitches
    • Work a Cloverleaf into the 4th stitch.
    • Repeat the 3 single crochets and the cloverleaf into the 4th stitch for the rest of the blanket. You may need to finagle a few stitches to get the cloverleaf on the corner if that is important to you.

Once done, weave in all loose ends, wash and block your blanket. One of the reasons I do like using the Berocco Modern Cotton for a knit baby blanket is that it washes up beautifully.  All the photos were taken after it had been washed and air dried.

      Hey Carole, we only have so much time in a day, right? And I know you put in many hours in that beautiful garden of yours. Perhaps my garden would look as lovely as yours if I spent less time knitting! ? But, knitting is a great hobby for those of us who have a hard time just sitting in front of the tv without something in our hands. If it is something you are interested in learning, there are so many fantastic youtube videos to learn from.

      Thanks for stopping by and happy weekend.

    What a beautiful baby blanket! I appreciated your comment on sweaters – I’m currently knitting two, and already feel that the time commitment far outweighs the time the garment will be worn or appreciated. In fact, one of the sweaters was meant to be a gift, and already the intended recipient has inadvertently let me know they don’t really care for it! LOL! In the meantime, I’ve had lots of opportunity to knit for friends expecting babies, and have grown very fond of knitting little things. I’ve been looking for a blanket pattern, and this is just gorgeous! Thank you!

      Krys,

      I feel ya! Yeah, there is just too much time (not to mention $$$) invested in a hand knit sweater. I also got to the point where I would knit something then see it in the store for ½ of what I paid for the yarn alone!
      But…that’s why we have blankets and washcloths, right?
      Thanks so much for popping in and leaving your sweet comment. I do love this blanket and just can’t wait for the new parents to receive it.
      Have a great weekend and hope you get some fun knitting in. I’m actually working on a Christmas stocking pattern that I hope to publish soon!

      Many hugs, Lynn

      Hey Barb…don’t be nervous about the edging…it’s very easy…I did attach some videos if crochet is not your strong suit, but I firmly believe that if you can knit you can crochet. Sometimes when I switch from knit to crochet I need to remind myself that I should only have on stitch on my crochet hook after I’ve completed each stitch.

      And don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions when you get there! I’d be thrilled to help.

      Happy Knitting (and crocheting)!

    Hi! What a beautiful pattern! Thank you for sharing it. If I wanted to make this a slightly smaller blanket how many do you recommend casting on? Thanks, again.

    Reply
    • lynn

      July 17, 2017 at 10:14 am

      Hi Liz, it really depends on the size you want. If you wanted it about half the size you could cast on only have of the 181 and if you wanted it about ¾ of the size, then cast on about ¾ of the 181. Make sense? You’ll have to gauge the length based on the width you decide if you want it to be a square.

      Hope this helps and thanks for stopping by today.

      Hi Lynn, Thanks so much for your kind words. In regards to how many stitches to cast on, I would be afraid to say specifically…if I were you I’d knit a swatch of your fingering weight yarn and figure out your gauge using that yarn.

    I just find it difficult to understand your instruction for Row 6.I got it till the part you say we have to repeat from*…but i didn’t get it when you said till last 2 stitches, because after dat we have to knit 2 and seed stitch 3..so it should be till last 5 right?

    I find similar confusion in Row 8 and 12 too .I will be really grateful if you could explain to me this.

      Hi Clare,

      Yes, you will K1 P1 the whole length of the blanket for 3 rows and you will end up with just a knit on the last stitch of the first row…but it works out fine. The eyelet body needs an odd number of stitches but wanted the border to have an even number on each side, so the blanket needed to have an odd number cast on overall.

      I hope that answers your question. Please let me know if you have further questions.

      Happy Knitting.

    Hi Lynn,
    lovely pattern and hoping to make for a friend’s baby, but I would like it to be a little smaller(not sure I have enough yarn). Is there a number to the pattern stitches I can apply when calculating how many to cast one? (I looked at one cloverleaf pattern which said 8 + 7 stitches, but can’t seem to apply it here).

      August 27, 2017 at 8:36 am

      Hi Lisa..yes…you can apply that 8 + 7, but then figure another 6 (3 on each end) stitches for the border. Hope that helps! Happy Knitting.

    Have there been any corrections to this lovely pattern? I’ve knit and ripped out the first 8 rows twice, because I start with 181 stitches, but the find I have 180sts in R8, and I can’t for the life of me figured out where I’ve gone wrong.

      I am racking my brain to figure out what’s going on with your knitting! I’m pretty confident that the pattern is correct but wondering if one of the steps might not be as clear as it needs to be. You are getting your Yarn Overs in, right? Do you have 181 after the 7th row? We’ll figure it out,…I promise!

      Hey Sharon…I had no idea I was doing it backward!! I guess I learned that way 30 years ago and didn’t know it was wrong. In looking at my pattern, I wonder if the cloverleaves would be smaller if I yarned over the ‘right’ way! Thanks for letting me know. I will surely attempt to ‘retrain’ myself, but man, that’s going to be hard after all these years.

      Have a great day my friend.

    Hi Lynn,
    I love this blanket, but was wondering if I could make it in a baby Merino or similar. I don’t know what it would be like in maybe a 3 ply or 4 ply?
    Could you give me an idea on that and what needles to use?
    I would love it to be soft and a bit drapey as I’m making it for my daughter to bring baby home from hospital.

      Hi Philippa,

      The Berroco Modern Cotton that I used was a DK weight, so as long as your Baby Merino is also a DK, I think you’d be just fine. As far as the needle, I used a US 7 (4.5mm) which is what it looks like many Baby Merinos use as well, so I would go with the recommended needle for the yarn. I would definitely knit a swatch to gauge, and make adjustments as needed.

      What a lovely gift…I know your daughter will be thrilled!

      Happy Knitting my friend.

      Hugs, Lynn

    I had such a great time knitting this beautiful blanket! It will be my “go to” baby gift blanket from now on. I knitted a matching hat and it makes a lovely set. Lynn, Thank you for this great gift of a pattern!

    With appreciation,
    Teresa

      Oh Teresa, I am so thrilled! In all honesty, it was one of my favorite knit projects as well and I’m looking forward to knitting it again. If you get a chance, I’d love for you to share a picture of the hat that you knit to go along with it! Not only would I love to see it, but I imagine other readers would love to see it as well.

      You are a dear to take a minute and share your kind comments.

      You made my day my friend,

      Hugs, Lynn

    I am having trouble with the first three rows! My knits sit in knits. Do you change k p in every row to make it work? I wish there were a video. I’ve ripped theee times and tried sev ways. I’m sure I’m making it harder than it seems. Thank you…love this pattern!

      Hi Joyce, so the confusion arises because we are dealing with an odd number of stitches. If you were doing standard seed with an even number of stitches, you’d be knit, purl on one row and then purl, knit on the next because you’d be ending on a purl. But since we have an odd number of stitches, just knit, purl for the three rows. You will end with a knit, so when you reverse, your knit will be sitting on a purl. I hope this makes sense!

      Let me know if not and I’ll give it another shot.

      Have a great day my friend.

    Hi I’m the same as Wendy Farkas. I get 180 stitches after row 6 and also have tried redoing twice. Also at the end of row 6 I do the kids then there are 3 stitches left for the seed stitch…is this correct?

      Hi Amanda…For you second question, yes you should have three stitches left for the seed stitch.

      As for your first question…I know that when I first did this pattern, I did miss a few of the K2 and came out with the wrong stitch count.

      I am out of town, so away from my yarn and needles, but will be home Friday night if you are still having issues.

    I’ve been working on this blanket and on row 7 when I was purling the whole row there were a few stitches I noticed that didn’t look like normal stitches you purl. (I’m not good with knitting terms so I hope you understand).
    I purled everything, although now I have a sneaking suspicion that I should have just dropped those weird “stiches” off my needle since that’s what would make the cloverleaf?
    So should I only purl/knit stitches that look normal and drop everything else off?

      Good Morning Hayley,

      If you set up row 6 correctly , then by just 100% purling the purl side, you will get the clovers. Some of the stitches do look ‘odd’…it’s probably the yarn overs that look odd.

      It may take 3-4 rows for you to be able to see the pattern.

      Definitely get back with me if you still have issues.

      Happy Knitting my friend.

      Hugs, Lynn

    Hello,

    I’m on row 13 and the cloverleafs look very small. I think this is due to how I am purling them. Can you explain how you purl them?

      Good Morning Rini,

      I have been told that I do my yarn overs incorrectly, which does result in larger ‘holes’. I yarn over from front to back, while I think the rest of the world does their yarn over from back to front.

      As it relates to purling, your purl row should be just normal purls…don’t treat them any differently.

      Let me know if this helps at all.

    This blanket is beautiful, however I’m having a little trouble in the first three rows! Is the repeating pattern K1 P1, with a final knit at the end, or K1 P1 K1? The asteroid in the instructions says to repeat from the first K1 so I read it as K1 P1 K1, K1 P1 K1… but in another comment you have said it is normal seed stitch ending in a K1. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks so much.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      So sorry for any confusion, but you will end every row with a K1.

      I’m going to see how I can clarify that in the post, so thanks for the heads up.

      Happy Knitting my friend.

      Hugs,

      Lynn

    I just finished the knitting and will start the crocheting tomorrow. The pattern is beyond beautiful. I had bought the yarn in Italy waiting for the right pattern. Thank you.
