Knitted dog blanket

My sister asked me to knit her dog, Frankie, a sweater for Christmas (and I did).  I just finished making him a blanket (basically it's a big dishcloth).

I used Caron Chunky Cakes Yarn (Sweet and Sour), which stripes naturally, for both.  It's a 6 ply yarn and I used 8mm needles.

  • Cast on 3 stitches
  • Row 1 (wrong side): k3
  • Row 2 (right side): kfb (knit front and back of stitch), k1, kfb 
  • Row 3: k5
  • Row 4: kfb, k until 1 stitch left, kfb
  • Row 5: knit
  • Repeat row 4 and 5 until you have reached the desired size (it's the first half)

  • Row 1 (right side): k2tog, knit until 2 stitches left, ssk (slip slip knit)
  • Row 2 (wrong side): knit
  • Repeat row 1 and 2 until only 3 stitches remain
  • Last row: Bind off the 3 remaining stitches
