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!
