Measure was nice enough to serve as a model for me -- I think the blankie ended up being a nice size, and it will be especially snuggly on a newborn.
Since the blanket is so simple, here are the instructions:
4 balls Muench Touch Me
1 ball cotton in a coordinating color, for edging
US 9 needles
crochet hook appropriate for your cotton
Cast on 65 stitches and work in basketweave pattern as follows:
Row 1: knit 5, *purl 5, knit 5, repeat from * to end.
Row 2: purl 5, *knit 5, purl 5, repeat from * to end.
Rows 3 and 5: repeat row 1
Rows 4 and 6: repeat row 2
Rows 7, 9, and 11: repeat row 2
Rows 8, 10, and 12: repeat row 1
Repeat these 12 rows of pattern to desired length. Bind off loosely. Weave in ends.
Wash the blanket in the machine in warm water on a normal cycle. It should shrink about 10% or so. Stretch it out to disperse any chenielle that is "worming" and throw it in the dryer until it is about 75% dry -- lay it out on a towel, smoosh it into a tidy rectangle, and allow it to finish drying. Trim any protruding ends.
To edge the blanket, take your crochet hook and cotton and work a round of single crochet, not too loose, not too tight, around the entire blanket. (To turn your corners more neatly, work two or three single crochet stitches into the same corner hole.) Then, work as follows to create the scalloped edge: Double crochet three times into the same stitch, work one single crochet in each of the next three stitches, repeat around the entire edge of the blanket. Weave in ends.
