I am all about EASY and this easy knit square pattern I am sharing today is no exception!
The pattern is super easy and will turn a beginner knitter into a confident one.
My sister in law used the pattern to create a blanket for a toddler - it is suitable for babies, toddlers, teens and let's say cold knees. She backed it with a fleecy fabric, making it suitable for a play mat or something nice to tuck under during winter.
What you'll need:
Knitting Needles according to the thickness of your yarn
Blunt Needles (stitching it together)

The Easy Knit Square Pattern
k - Knit

Cast on 30 sts.
Knit as follows:-
Rows 1 - 20 All knit
*Row 21 - knit
Row 22 - k10, p10, k10**
Repeat rows 23 - 40 from * to **, thus alternating the middle stitches to form the block.

You will need about 64 blocks to make a decent sized blanket (with double knit yarn).
