New baby blanket - Sweet Valentine

The latest of the baby blanket called "Sweet Valentine" due to this vibrant Raspberry Sorbet color you want literally munch on. This time I tried a new yarn, Madelinetosh Merino DK, in Vermilion color.
I always like to knit garter stitches for baby blankets but it is a bit boring to knit 100 garter stitch row so I designed it with a little twist 

the "Sweet Valentine" blanket is available for purchase in my Etsy store

Blanket size is 50 by 50 cm, or 23 by 23 inches
Supply: 1 skein of MadelineTosh Merino DK


Cast on 79 st, with US9 

Knit in garter (all knit) for 7 rows
Wrong side, knit 4, (purl 1, knit 6) 10 times, purl 1, knit 4
Then on right side, knit all stitches
Repeat these 2 rows 50 times
Finish with 6 rows of garter st and bind off.

En français, c'est par ici
