As far as I can tell, it's the pattern that I remember. I haven't really had a close look at the blanket in almost a year. I was amazed that I found so quickly, simply by asking for links. I had been googling most of the day for it and some of the day before, and didn't come up with anything. Plus I'd been looking for the pattern for the past 3 years too. So you can imagine that I was very excited to find it.
I'm using Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn! in Dark Olive. I think that it suits the blanket well, and plus the yarn is just so soft.
