I selected 'Light Blue' yarn color for this design when I was in the early stages of test knitting ideas.

A couple hours later I realized that this blue blanket reminded me of graph paper...both in it's classic square pattern design and the light blue color that is often used for the printed lines on graph paper.

The pattern includes instructions for five (5) sizes. Approximate sizes after blocking:
Baby/Infant: 30" wide x 35.25" long
Small/Crib/Lap Blanket: 37.5" wide x 39.5" long
Medium Throw: 41.5" wide by 43.75" long
Large Throw: 45" wide x 48" long
XL Afghan: 48.75" wide x 56.5" long
It is easy to make any of the blankets sizes longer. Details are included in the pattern instructions, including estimates of how much additional yarn is required.
I made the the large throw and I love how it turned out! This blanket is big, soft and so cozy!

If you prefer to knit with worsted weight yarn...you might like my new On the Map blanket knitting pattern. Read more about it here on my blog.

I use long circular knitting needles to accommodate the large number of stitches. The blanket is worked flat, back and forth...basically the same as knitting with straight needles. However, the two needles happen to be connected by a long cord.

I highly recommend blocking the finished blanket. Blocking really helps straighten and even out the stitches. For best results, use blocking mats and blocking pins to secure the blanket in place while it dries. Read more about blocking on this blog post.
