FO: Car seat blanket
Per a discussion on the Ravelry Baby Blanket forum I made the blanket w/o the openings for the straps. Thick blankets, particularly this one, prevent the straps from keeping the baby secure in the seat and some hospital personnel have visions of a baby falling out in the event of an accident.

Blanket is made with double strands of Bernat worsted and #11 circular needle. Dark color makes is particularly hard to photograph. Click on photos for better view.

I love it when people use "out-of-the-ordinary" colors for baby things, and this dark, rich purple blanket is just the thing. Absolutely stunning!

Thank you! It's a pattern from England. The link is not direct...it brings you to a Google page. Scroll down to Car Seat Blankets/Covers/Claire's Baby and Doll Handknit Designs.

Look for Blankets in the list on the left side, then scroll down. It's the white blanket (baby has blue hood on) and one part of two patterns, the second being the red/pink furry blanket. It took very little time for the pattern to arrive.

I also made a mint green one w/holes for straps back in March which is my only project posted on Ravelry thus far.
