Isabel's Blanket

This is the cute blanket I made for my cousin Tim's daughter. Extremely soft and cozy!

Measurements - Approx. 29 x 29 ins
Materials - Bernat Baby Blanket (Big Ball) (7 oz.), Size U.S. 10 knitting needles
Gauge - 13 sts and 18 rows = 4 ins in stocking st.

Cast on 95 sts.
Knit 9 rows, noting first row is WS. Next row: (RS). Knit. Next row: K5. Purl to last 5 sts. K5.
Rep last 2 rows until work from beginning measures 27 1/2 ins, ending with WS facing for next row. Knit 8 rows. Cast off knitwise (WS).

Also, I wanted to share the idea of this pretty way to "gift wrap" blankets as the blanket itself makes the perfect wrapping!
