Needlework: Blue Baby Blanket and Ducky

This baby afghan is made in blue this time and Ducky is crocheted in matching yarn.  Click here to see it in green and here for yellow.
Note: You can make the border wider if you so desire as I did on this 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.

Wow, you did a really lovely job on those. I tried crocheting recently but only got as far as a few scarfs for my niece. That little duck is adorable!

I love these combinations. The ducky is precious. I also really like the stitch you used. It's tight, yet not overly thick. A wonderful set!
