Combined Breaking Waves

Updated: Nov 19, 2022


Third of the ‘Grey Mist’ baby blanket squares, this one representing the wave patterns. A combo of the two different sized breaking waves from the sunny blanket.


General principles for square patterns:

  • Repeat pattern horizontally (but not vertically for this blanket) & simple to knit pattern.

  • 36 stitches x 48 rows (this one is 49) for main pattern as these are very divisible numbers.

  • An 'x' means purl on a knit row, and knit on a purl row to create the texture.


This lower chart is the format I found to be most useful to me:

  • White = knit row (right side), grey = purl row (wrong side).

  • An 'x' = purl on a knit row, and knit on a purl row

  • The numbers are just a handy guide to the number of stitches in each knit or purl block.


Written pattern:

See blanket pattern for required needles & yarn.
