Star Lattice Baby Blanket

So, my last post showed you the star lattice stitch pattern.  It's a simple stitch with a little twist.  In variegated yarn it messes up the self striping patterns that tend to develop.  That makes it so that you can actually see the pattern.  Here's a baby blanket I made from it.

Here's how to make it:
Chain 91:
Row 1: dc in 4th chain from hook, dc across
Row 2: ch 3, turn, dc across
Row 3: ch 3, turn, star stitch across
Rows 4-5: ch 3, turn, dc across

Repeat rows 3-5 until work is square.  Add the standard border and you're done:
Round 1: sc around, 3 sc in each corner
Round 2: dc around, 5 dc in each corner
Round 3: sc around, 3 sc in each corner
Round 4: (sc, ch 3, sk 1) around, (sc, ch 3, sc) in corner

I made this with Baby Bee 'Sugar Plum Camo' yarn with a J hook.


  1. I love this blanket so much! I have a question for you, how many skeins of yarn did it take to make it? Thank you for sharing this! :)

    1. It took less than 2 skeins; I have a reasonably sized ball of yarn left over. Glad you like it!

    2. Thank You for answering my question! That's a very reasonable amount of yarn. Now I am all pumped up to start one! :)
