9.5 sts x 20 rows in 4” (10 cm) in lacy diamond pattern
SKILL LEVEL Easy+
Lovey/Cuddle: Approx. 16” x 18” (40 x 46 cm)
Receiving Blanket: Approx. 38” x 41” (97 x 104 cm)
Throw: Approx. 56” x 60” (142 x 152 cm)
If you want to adjust the size of the blanket, the lace stitch pattern uses a multiple of 11 + 16. Each additional 11 st multiple adds approx 4.5” (11.5 cm) to the width and each 16-row repeat adds approx. 3.3” (8.4 cm) to the length of the blanket.
I recommend the chain cast on for this pattern.
Cast on 38 (93, 137) sts.
Row 1: P all.
Row 2: K all.
Rep Row 1 once.

Love this! I have some leftover skeins of bernat blanket so I’ll give it a try!
Have you tried converting the lotus knit stitch to loom knitting? I tried and just got stumped.

I don't have access to my looms. How would I do this on a circular needle with baby yarn #3. It's for a newborn so has to be ultra lightweight. Is it possible?
