Exchanging knit to crochet

Dishcloth Baby Blanket  

Convert this pattern to crochet

Thankd to Kenny kenny.chua.b@bayer.com for sharing this with us.

The pattern I used is a very common pattern.  It can be found anywhere and it's probably what grandma would use from memory if she would to knit a dishcloth.  I just made a super big dishcloth and used it as a blanket.
So, I'm not sure if you want to give me ownership of the pattern.... cuz it's not mine and you can find it anywhere.  I can answer any questions though... since I have made it.

The pattern is knit on the bias.  Increased until desired length then decrease to finish the blanket.  I'll can tell you what I did and people are more than welcome to contact me but I'm a new knitter.

I used size 11 needles.  2 strands of Bernat Baby Softee DK weight held together.  One was Pink and the other Pink Marble. I used almost 6 skeins all together.

Repeat last row until desired width.  I knit until about 36"

Next Decrease Row, Knit 2, k2tog, yo, SSK, k to end.

Repeat last Row until there are 7 stitches on needle.

Next Decrease Row Knit 2, k2tog, k2tog, k to end.

Bind off remaining 5 stitches.

I slipped every first stich of the pattern to make a neater edge.
