Needlework: Yellow Feather and Fan Baby Blanket

If you missed the last "Feather and Fan" baby blanket entry, here it is again along with a stuffed baby elephant toy. This blanket works up in a lacy pattern which is very delicate looking.

FEATHER AND FAN AFGHAN
Five 4 oz. skeins of knitting worsted
size 10 1/2 circular needles

Cast on 154 sts. K 6 rows for edge
Start pattern:
Row 1: K5 (border), K2 tog four times *(YO, K1) eight times; K2 tog. eight times
Repeat from * across to within 13 sts from the end. K2 tog four times, K5(border)
Row 2: K5, purl across, K5
Row 3: K across
Row 4: K5, purl across, K5
Repeat these four rows for 5 skeins, leaving enough yarn to end with 6 knit rows. It is helpful to use a marker for side borders.

This is a beautiful baby blanket. I might have to give it a try. I've knitted plenty of things, but I've always steered away from blankets. I know I can crochet them fast, so I figured it would take longer to knit one. But I just did my first one. Actually I just posted about it on my blog this morning asking for advice on the border. Maybe you can help.

I am making a similar full size afghan for our first family blanket. I love the simplicity of the stitch pattern and the beauty of the design.

Beautiful blanket. I'm too uneven...whenever I try to hand crochet or knit it turns out so lopsided...I admire your talent!
