FO - Patchwork Pleaser Baby Blanket
A year and a half ago, I made the Tree of Life Afghan for one of my church's youth pastors and his new wife...



Well, they are expecting a baby in a couple of weeks, so I wanted to make them a set of gifts that would continue to show them how much I care for them (they've mentored both of my children over the years).

I made this blanket to accompany the hat and booties I had also knit up.

This is the Patchwork Pleaser blanket, and it's in a book I had purchased a while back.



I used Lion Brand's Pound of Love in Antique White. Surprisingly, this project required only 700 yards of yarn. I used size 11 needles.



This was an easy pattern and has a vintage look and feel to it...



I worked five complete repeats plus one final row to even things out.



I was so happy to be able to finally gift these as I'd had them finished a few months ago.

Thanks for looking!!
