Pinkie Blankie written pattern

Sweethoney on Ravelry nudged me on to write out the Pinkie Blankie pattern for knitters who don’t love charts (So many of you! I didn’t know!)…

Here is our pattern. I think we’ve got it right now…

After bottom border rows (which are all garter stitch, as many as you like to balance the size of the blanket you make. I make 12 rows (6 ridges) at top and bottom of blanket to match the 6 garter stitches on the side borders, which are included in the pattern below):

1 (RS) K6, *{K1, YO, K3, P2tog, K1, P2tog, K3, YO},*, K1, K6
2 (WS) K6, * (P), *, K6
3 (RS) K6, * {K2, Yo, K2, P2tog, K1, P2tog, K2,YO,K1},*, K1, K6
4 (WS) K6, *(P), *, K6
5 (RS) K6,* {K3, YO, K1, P2tog, K1, P2tog, K1,YO,K2},*, K1, K6
6 (WS) K6, *(P), *, K6
7 (RS) K6, *{K4, YO, ssk, K1, K2tog, YO, K3}, *, K1, K6
8 (WS) K6, * (P), *, K6
9 (RS) K6, *{K5, YO, sk2p, YO, K4}, *, K1, K6
10 (WS) K6, * (P), *, K6
11 (RS) K1, P2tog, K3, YO, *{K1, YO, K3, P2tog, K1, P2tog, K3, YO},*, K1, YO, K3, P2tog, K1, K6
12 (WS) K6, * (P), *, K6
13 (RS) K6, K1, p2tog, K2, YO, * {K3, Yo, K2, P2tog, K1, P2tog, K2,YO},*, K3, YO, K2, P2tog, K1, K6
14 (WS) K6, *(P), *, K6
15 (RS) K6, K1, p2tog, K1, YO, * {K5, YO, K1, P2tog, K1, P2tog, K1,YO,},*, K5, YO, K1, P2tog, K1, K6
16 (WS) K6, *(P), *, K6
17 (RS) K6, K2tog, YO *{K7, YO, ssk, K1, K2tog, YO}, *, K7, YO, ssk, K1, K6
18 (WS) K6, *(P), *, K6
19 (RS) K6, K2tog, YO, *{K9, YO, sk2p, YO}, *, K9, YO, ssk, K6
20 (WS) K6, *(P), *, K6

Repeat these twenty rows for the pattern, then knit garter stitch to match the top border.  Thanks, Sweethoney!

Question. I am not a good chart reader so I found this helpful, but when I got to the end of the first row, I did the last yarn over – and saw that i had 7 stitches left, not 6. Should I actually be purling 7 stitches at the end of that first row, or knitting one after the last yarn over, then purling? Help! (please 🙂

Hey Beth,

Well I apologize. I am not much of a written pattern person, and though sweethoney asked me three times to check it before I posted it, I just didn’t. (Knitting from written lines just makes me cross-eyed. I don’t know how you guys do it!)
Bad Juju!
You found the missing knit-stitches at the ends of the rows! Thanks for that!
I just fixed those above, and wrote out the next 10, which do knit up a tad differently. I’m knitting from it now, and it seems to be working just fine. Let me know if you have any other troubles!

Happy Knitting!

Minor edit: Beginning of Row 11 there’s no K6 for the border. Its so early it didn’t click and I got to the end of the row with 6 extra stitches and face palmed 🙂

row 17 should be K6 K1 *K2TOG YO K7 YO SSK K1* K6 repeats between stars. The K1 before the repeats was missed
