I need to knit a special baby afghan (preferably on circular needles) and wonder if anyone has any pattern suggestions. I have made tons on size 13 and 15 needles with 2 pieces of yarn, but am looking for something with 1 piece of yarn on circular needles. It will need to be completed by October and I work full time. Thanks in advance for your help!

This is a pretty one I recently made up in acrylic for a christening blanket. You can do it on straight or circular needles. The picture doesn't show up good, but the motifs shape up like hearts. It's free on Ravelry although you have to join Ravelry to get it, but joining is also free.

any blanket can be made on a circular needle. You just knit back and forth like on a straight needle.

You didn't indicate whether you are looking for patterns that still used the size needles you have. Since you indicated you wanted to work with circulars are you looking for a round afghan or shawl? There are lots of beautiful afghan patterns available. Here are some links you can search through.

A seed stitch border with basketweave interior is the easiest blanket to make. I use the 4x4" gauge listed on the yarn wrapper as to the number of stitches and rows to complete each square. Another easy blanket is the diagonal version of a washcloth that begins with 3 stitches, add a yarn over on each row and knit to 200 stitches then decrease to 3 stitches. Or try a chevron/wavy knit pattern.

A loose knit pattern with lots of yarn overs throughout the entire blanket is not recommended for babies as they can get their fingers and toes trapped in these holes.

try the diagonal baby blanket. about 3-5 balls depending on size wanted. CO 5 sts,Row1:k,,Row2:k3,yo,k2,,Row3:k3,yo,k3,,,Row4:k3,yo,k to end of row. Repeat Row 4 until 160 sts.

Next(dec)row:K2,k2tog,yo,K2tog,k to end of row. Repeat last row until 5sts.Bind Off. use on straight needles until you need to put all sts on circular. DO NOT JOIN!!!
