2 Blankets

The green blanket is baby sized for the current campaign. The other is an acrylic blanket made for my niece's wedding gift. I'm currently working on a corner to corner knit baby blanket to use up a windfall of odd wool someone gave me. I didn't quite follow the instructions, as I wanted to make it bigger than the directions called for. I thought it would be easy to adjust, but now I'm a little confused. Any helpful hints? Thanks!

What gorgeous blankets, Esjay! They're both really beautiful.

What trouble are you having with the corner to corner? I knit one recently just in plain garter stitch, and if I remember correctly I did something like this:

CO 4
Every row: k2, kfb, knit to the end of the row.
Continue until sides are 30" each.
RS rows: k2, kfb, knit to the end of the row.
WS rows: k2, ktog, knit to the end of the row.
When you have one side 30" and one side 40":
Each row: k2, ktog, knit to the end of the row.
Continue until done.

Your blankets look great! I'm just now doing my first corner-to-corner knitted blanket, so I'm no help on anything technical about it. Thanks to Bloo, though, I may be able to figure out how to change mine to a rectangle.

Guess we'll both have fun!
