The Ribbed Seedling

Free Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern

The Ribbed Seedling is a knit baby blanket pattern featuring the beaded seed stitch, a combo of the seed stitch and ribbing. The border on this baby blanket knitting pattern is made up of the seed stitch.

I have classified The Ribbed Seedling under the knitting skill level EASY (a step more advanced than beginner). While this knitting pattern utilizes beginner level skills (casting on, knitting, purling, casting off), the intricacy of the pattern may be a bit much for a true beginner to tackle. That being said, as you can see below, there is only a 2 row repeat, so don't shy away from this project if you already have some experience knitting blankets or throws.

I really enjoyed designing and making this knit baby blanket pattern and I hope you do as well. It is a bit of a sequel to the much loved The Seedling Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern. If you are looking for a project where a true seed stitch is the star of a show, that might be what you are looking for!
