The pattern falls in the EASY SKILL level for knitting. I cover all stitches, including the increase and decrease, and weaving tails so if this is your first big project you will have all skills needed in this video. If you have never knit a stitch before I do recommend learning the longtail cast on, knit and purl with one of my slower videos first.
Let’s knit this blanket together! Download your pattern at the blog link above.

Needles & Supplies
• US 11 (8mm) circular needle with at least 40”
• tapestry needle
Approx 50½" x 60" [128.5 x 152.5 cm]. (Baby “Lovey” size 15”x19”)
Skills demonstrated in tutorial
K2tog - decrease
YO - increase
Weaving in ends
The blanket begins with a garter border then jumps right into the ripples. The ripples are created with a simple 2 row repeat that includes the K2tog (knit 2 stitches together) increase and the YO (yarnover) decrease. That’s right only two distinct rows to learn!
My video tutorial walks you through the entire pattern from start to finish. We’ll spend most of our time focusing on the 2 rows of the ripple pattern to make sure you have a good understanding of the techniques. Once you begin working, the ripples will fall off your needles quickly and you’ll reach the first color change before you know it. Then I’ll show you how to add in a new color (2 ways) so whatever colors you choose your transitions will be smooth. We’ll also discuss and show how to weave in the tails for color changes on a garter stitch and for the ending tail. Lots of tips included!
If you need a slower video on basic stitches (longtail cast-on, knit, purl & bind-off) or other techniques, please check out my slower tutorials on GoodKnit Kisses YouTube playlist.

BONUS! Make a Baby Lovey!
I made a smaller baby “lovey” in the video in Purple, Lilac & Quartz Pink; 1 ball of each. The size is 15”x19” with a cast on of 48 stitches. Download the pattern, grab your yarn and needles and watch the video for complete tutorial.
