Christening blanket
Pattern is from Yarn Lovers room, titled Knit Baby Blanket. Intrigued me because the person said an Aunt was making a doll dress and this person asked her to do a pattern in the same stitch for a blanket. So, here is my Christening blank for upcoming granddaughter. The pattern does seem to be almost reversible, I think both side look like they could be the right side.

It really was soft. I wasn't sure at first with the yarn but once washed it was wonderful. Thanks!

It think it was about 34 x 34 or might have been a bit smaller. There weren't any real dimensions, just cast on 127 follow pattern until desired length and then 10 rows of garter stitch for border.
Thanks for the compliment!

Thanks for the info. I have just finished a white blanket for my DD, and decided to end it when I had "had enough." It is about 33" x 35". Seems about right. I have enough yarn to do matching hat and booties. Pictures soon.
