Knit me Baby, One More Line is pattern #24 in the 2018 Harmony Blanket Knit Along. Normally, color changes in garter stitch need to be worked on the right side of the fabric in order to get a clean line. With this square, a simple shift in the garter stitch pattern allows the stripes to be worked neatly out from the center, in alternating directions.
The pattern includes both written and charted versions of the instructions.
The Harmony Blanket KAL is a knit-along event hosted by the Underground Crafter, Creative Crochet Workshop, and myself. Together with a great team of guest designers, we will be bringing you 48 blanket square patterns throughout the year. Each pattern will have the same, garter stitch border, so that they can easily be combined into a blanket!
Lion Brand has generously provided us with their lovely Vanna’s Choice yarn for free, to use for our designs. It’s a washable, worsted weight acrylic yarn that’s a great choice for blankets. For more information about the event and links to the patterns, be sure to visit the main #HarmonyBlanket post. I hope you’ll join in the fun!

I hope you enjoy the pattern. Thanks to Lion Brand for providing the yarn!
A downloadable pdf of this pattern is also available in my Craftsy store or on Ravelry, for a small fee. The fee for the pdf format is to offset the advertising revenue lost when you print or download the pattern rather than viewing it online.
