:) Pattern:

Start by knitting in the magic-loop-method.
CO 4 STS, place a stitch marker in between each stitch, with a unique stitch marker for the beginning of your round, split 2 STS per needle. {or you can use DPN’s.}

Round 1: *K1, SM* {repeat 4 times}

Round 2: *INC1, K1, INC1, SM, K1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}
Round 3: *K3, SM, INC1, K1, INC1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

Round 4: *INC1, K3, INC1, SM, K3, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}
Round 5: *K5, SM, INC1, K3, INC1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

Round 6: *INC1, K5, INC1, SM, K5, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}
Round 7: *K7, SM, INC1, K5, INC1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

Round 8: *INC1, K7, INC1, SM, K7 SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}
Round 9: *K9, SM, INC1, K7, INC1, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

Round 10: *INC1, K9, INC1, SM, K9 SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}
Round 11: *K11, SM, INC1, K7, INC9, SM* {repeat one more time for the other side}

I think you have the hang of it now, so you’ll want to repeat rounds 10 & 11 until you’ve reached your desired size.

Knit all the STS in the row before you start your border, leaving the 4 stitch markers in place.

Border:
Row 1: [P1K1, *P1, K1* P1, KFB | SM | KFB, *K1, P1* K1, P1K1] repeat 1 more time

Row 2: *P1, K1* {slip markers as you come to them}

Row 3: [KFB, *K1, P1* K1, P1K1| SM | P1K1, *P1, K1* P1, KFB] repeat 1 more time

Row 4: *K1, P1* {slip markers as you come to them}

Row 5: [P1K1, *P1, K1* P1, KFB | SM | KFB, *K1, P1* K1, P1K1] repeat 1 more time

Row 6: *P1, K1* {slip markers as you come to them}

Bind-off:
BO: [*KFB, put both STS on right needle slipping the first stitch over the second, BO knitting the knit STS and purling the purl STS {this will give you a stretchy edge} your last stitch before your stitch marker, KFB, put both STS on right needle slipping the first stitch over the second, BO last st, remove stitch marker*]repeat 4 times

Note:
You can block it if you want to. I blocked mine, several times, and the center never laid completely flat. :( I created this pattern because I love all the square crocheted blankets out there that start in the center and I want a knitted one, but couldn’t find one. Well, I guess I know why… it doesn’t lay flat in the center… but I still love it!
