Badass Winter Blankie

Thoughts:

Needed something to quickly knit for a friend's baby this winter, but none of the patterns were really catching my eye. Then I remembered this jolly roger pattern I half-baked myself some time ago.

Pattern :

Knit on US 15 (10.0mm) needles with super bulky yarn

CO 52 sts

Main structure:

  1. (k4, p4) × 6, then k4
  2. (p4, k4) × 6, then p4
  3. repeat 1 & 2
  4. p4, k44, p4
  5. k4, p44, k4
  6. repeat 4 & 5
  7. k52
  8. p52
  9. repeat 7 & 8
  10. repeat 4-9 until 2 rows after pattern ends
  11. repeat 1-3

Pattern

2 rows after ribbing is complete, begin Jolly Roger pattern. k on black squares, p on white.
