This is a baby blanket I did for my son's girlfriend's brother. It is their first baby. I used Bernat Softee Baby yarn in baby blue. I held 2 strands together and used a size 9 needle. The blankie came out to 34 X 36 inches. I got the pattern out of a very old Paton's book that originally sold for .65 cents.

Holy cow that is a gorgeous blanket. The recipient of that is one lucky baby! You did a wonderful job on that blanket. Can you direct me as to where to get the pattern for that?

Thank you everyone for the very nice compliments. The pattern wasn't hard to do. In fact I found each row's instruction easy to memorize. It took me about 2 weeks to make this blanket. I have attached a picture of the booklet that I got the pattern from. It is a very old booklet, so old that it cost .65 Cents when first purchased. Sometimes you can still find this booklet on the Internet.

that looks amazing! I have a bunch of old pattern books that were my Gram's and I love to look at them. I have made a few, but sometimes finding the proper yarn is a challenge.

Spurred on by a new grandchild that's coming, I bought some Berroco Comfort (color 9714) for making this blanket. I'm about to cast on for it. I got the pattern booklet off of eBay. Thanks again for posting about yours. I had to do a little research to figure out what w.o.n, w.r.n., and Wl.fwd meant, but it really is a lovely pattern, and I look forward to making it.

I ordered the booklet also. It hasn't yet arrived so I don't know in what context those abbreviations are used, but I'm sure I will need to know. Help!

I asked here and was given support. I am getting it confirmed by someone else who I emailed, but I've been treating them all as yarnovers, and it's working out great.
So nice to have another knitter along with me as I do this blanket. Are you starting it right away?

As soon as I get the booklet and get some yarn! May just use the yarn I have.

I did google and found out that the "w" means wool and is basically a yarn over.

This is going to be fun.

I am also anxious to see that other items are in the booklet.

Sure. Happy to help. I just did a search on Nursery Styles Beehive. The one that shows in the regular auction isn't the one. There are 2 in the ebay stores section for buy it now. I do believe the first one is in Canada and that takes forever for it to get to the US. The second one costs a little more, but it will be here lots sooner.

Please let me know if you need any more info.
