I finished this baby blanket today. It is a gift for a friends new granddaughter. I used Plymouth "Fantasy Naturale" yarn- 100% cotton, and size 8 needles. The pic is taken before blocking.

hi :)
tell me about the pattern you used,please....also what is the color of that yarn?

Thanks, everyone!!

The pattern that I used was one I got for free from my LYS when I purchased the yarn. It was really simple- just a matter of knitting a YO and then a SSK repeat of 4 sts across the row, and purling the WS rows. I'm not sure what the rules are for posting patterns- if I'm allowed to, I'd be more than happy to post it.

Iwaly, the yarn was Plymouth "Fantasy Naturale", and it doesn't have a color name on the label- just a number. It is #9946.

I didn't realize how wild the colors looked in the photos until after I posted them- it really isn't that pschyadelic in real life!! More of a variegated bright pastels.
