How to Knit the "Daisy" Baby Blanket [Free Video Tutorial & Written Pattern!]

***You can purchase an INEXPENSIVE AD-FREE PDF of this pattern on Ravelry HERE or Etsy HERE***

Daisy is a perfect example of a project not needing to be complicated to be interesting and modern. Using a simple simple one row repeat, Daisy is a beautifully soft garter stitch blanket, with little columns of purl stitches adding a tiny bit of texture just to make her stand out from the crowd.

She is fully reversible, which means she looks the same on her reverse and right side, I know lots of you out there love your blankets to have no right and wrong side, so hopefully Daisy satisfies that urge ๐Ÿ™‚

She will work in any colour, or any weight yarn - let your imagination go wild and stash bust to your hearts content. I've knitted my sample in a soft heather colour, but I think Daisy would also work well in a bold bright shade, a variegated yarn, or even using blocks of colour to create horizontal stripes. She's a great all rounder of a pattern!

My instructions produce a Blanket approximately 60cm x 80cm, but for those of you wanting to adjust this size, it can easily be done using the pattern multiple of 6+1.

I've popped a link to my video tutorial at the bottom of this post for those of you who prefer to have a more visual tutorial.

Happy Knitting!

Materials Needed:

  • 4mm Circular Needs (to recreate this blanket 80-120cm is a perfect length)
  • 400g of DK Yarn - I used Stylecraft Bambino in Heather
  • Scissors & Tapestry Needle for sewing in ends

Written Pattern:

Stiches Used

  • k - knit
  • p - purl
  • sl1pwyf - slip one purlwise with yarn in front.

Pattern Repeat

Foundation Row: Using the Long-Tail cast on, Cast on 133 stitches.

Row 1 (Repeat Row): k6, *p1, k5* Repeat *to* until 1 stitch remains, sl1pwyf

Repeat until project is desired length and cast off in pattern.

TOP TIP: It doesn't matter which side you cast off on, but if you want a matching top and bottom edge, cast off on a row when the yarn tail from your cast on is at the bottom left hand corner of your blanket.

    You say to that the pattern consist of multiples of 6 +1, however I canโ€™t get the math to work out for your cast on of 131 sts. for the blanket. (6x21=126+1=127) or 6x22=132+1=133). So, should I CO 133 sts for the pattern to work?

      Hi Debbie - you are absolutely correct. I've made an error with the cast on amount. I'm so sorry! I will correct the pattern now. The multiple is correct, just the cast on was wrong. Laurelin ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi are any of the patterns available that are knitted on 2 needles please never knitted on circular ones thanks

    • SnufflebeanYarn says:


      I only knit on circular needs as they offer flexibility and are less heavy on my hands. To knit these blankets you knit back and fourth as if you would on straight needles, but just using circular needles instead.
