red heart® loop-it™ sweet stroller blanket

Keep your small one warm with this sweet stroller blanket! It’s made with Red Heart® Loop-It™ yarn, so you don’t need to know how to knit or crochet. Instead, pre-made loops make it easy to work your stitches evenly. Take a look at the free pattern below to get started!
Step 1

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 30" [76 cm] x 40" [101 cm]

NOTES:

  • Finger looping fun™ -  No tools required.
  • Begin work on a flat surface. Stitches are worked by pulling loops of yarn through a row of previous loops. Right side will be facing throughout.
  • To join balls of yarn, overlap three loops from the end of first ball with three loops from the beginning of second ball and work overlapping loops as one.


INSTRUCTIONS:

Count out 45 loops (approximately 30" [76 cm]) and fold yarn at this point to create base row.

Beginning Border

Row 1 (Right Side): Working from left to right, pull loops of working yarn through the loops of base row loops working from back to front – knit row formed. Do not turn work.

Row 2: Working from right to left, pull loops from working yarn through loops of previous row from front to back – purl row formed. Do not turn work.

Row 3: Working from left to right, pull loops from working yarn through loops of previous row from back to front – knit row. Do not turn work.

Row 4: Working from right to left, pull loops from working yarn through loops of previous row from front to back – purl row formed. Do not turn work.

Row 5: Working from left to right, pull loops from working yarn through loops of previous row from back to front – knit row. Do not turn work.

Row 6: Working from right to left, pull loops from working yarn through loops of previous row from back to front – knit row. Do not turn work.

Repeat Rows 5-6 until piece measures 38" [96 cm] from beginning.

End Border: Repeat Rows 1-4. 

Bind off: Working from left to right, pull the first two loops of working yarn through first two loops of previous rows, pull the second loop just worked through the first loop, pull a third loop of working yarn through next stitch, pull that loop through the previous loop. Continue in this manner across the row until all stitches have been secured. Pull end through last loop.

Finishing: Weave in ends. You can tack ends down with sewing thread to help camouflage them in back of the work.
