Picot Edge Baby Blanket and Washcloth


This easy garter-stitch blanket is based on the washcloth pattern our grannies used to make. There is a picot edge to dress it up, but you can leave it unadorned if you like. The washcloth, tied up with a bar of soap, makes a nice shower or housewarming gift. For a grown-up throw or afghan just keep on knitting! For DK version, you will need 920 yards of yarn and US 6 needles; for worsted weight version, you will need 900 yards of yarn and US 8 needles; for chunky-weight version, you will need 768 yards of yarn and US 10 needles.
