Jack Be Nimble Baby Blanket

 “Jack be nimble, Jack be quick”, this blanket lives up to its name sake by being quick and simple to make. The textured stitch pattern of knit and purl stitches creates a beautiful fabric that any baby will love to be wrapped in. The pattern is easily adjusted to a larger size. This is a good beginner pattern, but has plenty of interest for a more advanced loom knitter.
 Loom: 5/8 inch gauge loom with 74 pegs flat knit (1/2 inch loom may be substituted) 
Yarn: 560 yards of bulky weight washable yarn divided as follows: 
Color 1 – 420 yards (sample used Knit Pick’s Billow in Whisker)
