I made this blanket out of half a skein of Pound of Love (medium weight, 4), color beige.
Size 10-1/2 (6.5 mm) knitting needles.
Cast on 86 sts.
Rows 1 - 4: knit
Row 5: K 00
Row 6: K, letting the extra 2 loops drop
Continue rows 1-6 until you've reached desired length of blanket. Finish by knitting the final 4 rows and binding off.
