Little hearty baby blanket - FREE KNITTING PATTERN

My first "bigger" project this year!
After long searching on the Internet I came up with my own design for baby blanket!

The plan was to make 5 by 7 squares (50cm X 70 cm) to use it as a throw over in buggy but somehow I managed to make it 4 by 5 squares. The pregnant brain makes tricks.
Well, maybe one day I have to rip edging from one side (top or bottom) and add a few square rows.

It looks "right side" from both sides, includes only knit and purl stitches, very simple.
Yarn used: Debbie Bliss cashmerino dk, a bit more than 3 balls for this tiny blanky. 
(As an alternative DROPS yarn group B yarns can be used: DROPS Merino Extra Fine, DROPS Cotton Merino … Choose your favourite yarns here: )
Needles 3 mm (I knit loosely). 

A FREE PATTERN is available (please give me credit and link back to this post):
The pattern in English.

Make sure, you knit your own sample square and measure it. You might have to change the pattern if your stitches are taller.

Nii armas! Huvitav on vaadata, kuidas valgus mustriga mängib :D See tore elukas, kes praegu tekki naudib on ka vahva :P

Väga armas tekike. Mul on nii kahju, et ma oma lastele tekki ei teinud, sellist päris oma sossut, mis oleks jäänud mälestuseks neile- või edasipärandamiseks.
