FO - Priceless White Diamonds Baby Blanket
I made this blanket for the same friend who asked me to make a baby hat for her. She had no idea that I was halfway finished with the blanket. I love surprising people.

The pattern is from the Leisure Arts #3219 book.

I used 2.5 skeins of Loops and Threads yarn and size 5 needles.

I completed 20 pattern repeats. The pattern became easier as I went along, and soon, I was flying through the blanket. I made 44 tassels across each end.

I didn't measure it before I wrapped it. It's pretty big, though...plenty large enough to wrap a baby in!

That's beautiful!

I've been looking for a pattern to use as a runner on top of my long dresser -- I think this might be it! (I already own this book and had forgotten this design until I saw your blanket.)

Thanks for sharing!
