The pattern I used is a very common and simple one, but quite effective. I used two skeins (each 340 g / 12 oz and approx 556 m / 608 yds) of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Ombre yarn and some leftover cotton yarn to make the thicker white stripe. I used 7 mm needles and knitted two strands of yarn together.

inc 1 = lifted increase on knit row
k = knit
k2tog = knit next 2 stitches together
yo = yarn over needle
ssk = slip, slip, knit

Cast on 3 stitches.
Row 1: knit, inc 1, turn.
Row 2: knit, inc 1, turn.
Row 3: k 3, yo, k 2, turn.
Row 4: k 3, yo, k 3, turn.
Row 5: k 3, yo, knit to the end of row, turn.
Repeat Row 5 until you obtain the desired width. I knitted until I had 131 stitches on the needle.
Next start decreasing rows.
Decrease Row: k 2, k2tog, yo, ssk, k to the end of row.
Repeat Decrease Row until there are 3 stitches on the needle.
Bind off and weave in the ends.

The size of the blanket is 90 cm2 without stretching.
