START THE PIECE HERE:

-------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles / circular needle from the middle outwards in a square. Change to a longer circular needle when necessary.

BLANKET:
Cast on 8 stitches with double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and BabyMerino. Divide the stitches so that there are 2 stitches on each needle. Knit 1 round. The next round is worked as follows: Work * A.1 (= 1 stitch), knit 1 (= corner stitch – to be able to see the corner stitch more easily, you can insert a marker thread in this stitch) *, work from *-* a total of 4 times. Continue with A.1 and 1 knitted corner stitch between each repeat of A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1 has been completed there are 39 stitches between each corner stitch and a total of 160 stitches on the needle.
The next round is worked as follows: * Work A.2 (= 9 stitches), A.3 (= 18 stitches), A.4 (= 12 stitches) and knit the corner stitch *, work from *-* a total of 4 times. Continue working A.2 to A.4 like this. When A.2 - A.4 have been worked 1 time in height there are 232 stitches on the row (57 stitches between each corner stitch). 
Continue to repeat A.2, A.3 and A.4 in height. For each repetition in height, you will work one more A.3 between A.2 and A.4. 
Work diagrams A.2 to A.4. a total of 9 times in height (or to desired length) = 808 stitches on the needle (201 stitches between each corner stitch).
The next round is worked as follows: * Work A.5 (= 9 stitches), A.6 until there are 12 stitches left before the corner stitch (i.e. work 10 repeats of 18 stitches, if A.2 to A.4 were worked 9 times in height), work A.7 (= 12 stitches) and knit the corner stitch * work from *-* a total of 4 times. When A.5 to A.7 have been completed there are 920 stitches on the needle (229 stitches between each corner stitch) and the piece measures approx. 100 cm between each corner stitch.

CASTING OFF:
Cast off, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after each yarn over from the previous round at the same time as you cast off. The yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches.
Tack a strand up and down around the hole in the middle of the blanket (by the cast-on edge). Tighten the strand so that the hole is closed and then fasten well.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round purl the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
