Knit Purl Baby Blanket Pattern

Knit and Purl Baby Blanket Pattern

I love to design many types of patterns, but baby blankets hold a special place in my heart. They are simple and repetitive, which makes them a great way to gain confidence in one’s knitting skills. And, I don’t know about you, but I love to have a knitting project on the go, yet I’m not always in the mood to think too hard about what I’m making. Baby blankets are ideal for this since there is no shaping involved. You simply repeat the same rows over and over until you have a cozy blanket to gift to the expecting parents in your life! The pattern that I’m sharing today is perfect for beginner knitters looking for a knit purl baby blanket (made entirely with knits and purls).

I named this blanket the Seaside Baby Blanket because the wavy pattern, created by combining knits and purls, reminds me of the ocean. The simple design creates the coziest nautical themed blanket that is perfect for cuddling up your little one for a cool evening stroll along the beach.

I had a lot of fun coming up with this pattern, and I hope you have just as much fun knitting it!

  1. Do you know how many grams, ounces, yards, or meters of yarn were used? I’m trying to figure out if one skein of Caron Jumbo would be enough? It is 12 oz/340g/659yd/602 m

  2. Just want to commend you on your pattern design. You really have a good math brain to figure the stitch pattern. I had made a mistake in row 14 and had to use my brain to correct, which I was able to, but made me realize how tricky the pattern repeats are. Just want to give you praise for the designs.

    1. Hi Maria, The needle size on the yarn is just a suggestion. You can usually go up or down from that size by a couple of sizes to make the fabric denser or to have more drape.

  3. Hi Alnaar,
    I am making the seaside knit baby blanket, but seem to be making a mistake somewhere in reading the directions. After Rows 1-8 of the border, which looks lovely, I began Row 9.
    I completed K1 P1 3 times then *K1. Do I just knit across the row to the last 6 stitches?
    I’d really appreciate your help.
    I’ve completed rows 1-20, but the pattern does not seem correct.
    Many thanks!

    1. Hi Janet, thank you for your question! Yes, you just need to knit every stitch all the way to the last 6 stitches 🙂
      I hope you enjoy the pattern!
