Baby Bear Blanket
This is my progress so far. I have made the borders 2.5 in. to give a 'frame' to the bears, and also because I am not using two strands of the yarn, as the pattern suggested. I am using one strand, and size 8 needles. I have 3 bears across, and with the borders, the blanket is 30 in. wide. I may do four rows of bears. The pattern is fun and easy to do -- only knit and purl -- but I would not call it a beginner pattern, because the instructions are not "beginner" style.
