Two-ball simple baby blanket

Simple baby blanket pattern:

Cast on 5.
Purl one row.

Increase section:
Odd rows:
P2, yo, K to last 2 sts, yo, P2.
Even rows:
P across.

Work until one ball of yarn is complete (I like to leave a few yards in case of uneven skein sizes).  Attach second ball.

Decrease section:
Odd rows:
P1, P2tog, yo, K2tog, K to last 5 sts, K2tog, yo, P2tog, P1
Even rows:
P across.
Work until 9 sts remain.
Next row: P1, P2tog, yo, K3tog, yo, P2tog, P1 (7 sts).
Next row: P across.
Next row: P1, P2tog, K3tog, P2tog, P1
Next row: P across
Bind off.

(Works with any yarn, any needle, any gauge, as long as you have two balls of the same size.  Have done this with bulky fluffy yarn and size 15s a few times.  Currently working with Bernat baby jacquards - florals, from Wal-Mart, as I was stuck with no yarn recently.  And size... 10? circulars.  Enjoy the way it works up, actually.  If I remember, I'll post a picture once it's finished - I'm halfway through.)
