Easy Aran Kitten Blanket

[Easy Aran Kitten Blanket Detail]

I've never knitted an Aran anything in my life, and thought yet another kitten blanket (for Peanut) would be of reasonable size to try this out. I also decided to stick with only two stitch patterns for simplicity.

What I came up with is bascially vertical strips of seed stitch alternating with a 4 stitch wide cable, each column separated by a single column of knit stitches. The result is quite pleasing to the eye, and to the kittie!

You'll need:
  1. Cast on 82 sts in knit.
  2. First row (wrong side): *p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p4, k1*, repeat across, ending k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, turn.
  3. Second row (right side): *K2, p1, k2, p1, place 2 sts on cable ndl, hold cable ndl in front while knitting next 2 sts, k2 from cable ndl, p1*, repeat across ending k2, p1, k2, p1, turn.
  4. Repeat first row.
  5. *K2, p1, k2, p1, k4, p1*, repeat across, ending k2, p1, k2, p1
  6. These four rows form the pattern. Repeat them until your fabric is approximately square (approx 27 pattern repeats), ending with row 3 then bind off in knit.
