       Using WW yarn (I use Caron Simply Soft) and size 8 needles, cast on 120 stitches.  Pattern repeat is 18 stitches.

       First row of BORDER:  Knit 6, place marker; knit 18 and place marker; knit 18 and place marker; knit 18 and place marker; knit 18 and place marker; knit 18 and place marker; knit 6.
       Do garter stitch border for a distance of about 1-1/4 inches (which should make the bottom border equal to the side borders).  When border is desired length, start pattern:
       ROW 1:  Purl

       ROW 2:  Knit 6; *k2 together 3 times; (k1, yo) 6 times; k2 together 3 times.  Repeat from * to last marker.  K6.

       ROW 3:  Knit.

       ROW 4:  Knit.

    Continue as above 'til the length almost equals the width (allowing 1-1/4 inches for the top border).  When you have completed pattern on row 4, just start your garter stitch border and continue til blanket is just about square and top border is as many rows as bottom border.
