Pattern for Stealth Baby Square #2
For our SnB's Stealth Baby Blanket knitting project, here is Square #2:
Used: Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn in Rose Mist (1/2 skein, approx. 72.5 yds)
#9 (5.25 mm) Needles
Gauge: Just shy of 4 stitches per inch in garter. The gauge is not important, as you will be increasing until you have 10" for each side of the square.
Cast on 2 stitches
Row 1: K
Row 2: Increase in the first stitch, put a stitch marker, then increase in the last stitch.
You should now have 4 stitches on the needle, with a stitch marker after the first 2 (in the middle).
Row 3: K
Row 4: K to one stitch before marker.
Increase in stitch just before the marker (kfb).
After marker, increase in next stitch (kfb).
K to end of the row.
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until each side of the square measures 10". I achieved this with 38 stitches on each side of the marker, but your gauge may vary.
Bind off loosely.
