The beginner blanket is a blanket with a very simple pattern using garter stitch as well as a simple stitch pattern of yarn overs and knitting 3 stitches together. The pattern looks advanced, but is actually very easy to knit. The pattern includes both a charted and a written pattern. The blanket can be knit using multiple colours with a contrasting stripe or in a single colour with a contrasting stripe.
