Second of the ‘Grey Mist’ baby blanket squares, this one representing the wet sand patterns - adding a pebbly sand pattern to the sand waves from the Dawlish Warren Stormy 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.
See blanket pattern for required needles & yarn.
