10/6 UPDATE-new pic WIP - Patchwork baby blanket
This item is now finished and a new thread has been started HERE.

The squares are:
FISH- This pattern is suppose to flatten out the fish for a whole blanket of fishies, but they were still puffy which is what I wanted anyway. However line 26 of the pattern is incorrect and should read:
Slip, SSK, K1, KFB, SSK, KFB, K1, K2TOG, K1
(the row that follows this correction is the "Slip, K10" row)
SUN- Somehow the pattern got off. Was it me? Maybe. Anyway I did a little scribbly thing in the orange to fill in the extra space near the top of the pattern. Definitely do in the different color.
SAILBOAT- WOW, definitely like the way this came out with the differenct colors. Next time straighten out the angle on the front of the boat though.
DINOSAUR (Stegosaurus)- I cannot for the life of me find the link again to the actual pattern. My printed copy has but when I go there I can't find this FREE pattern. Again I made a few changes to it anyway.
Frog - I changed it a tad to make him a little plumper
HORSE- Modified from the original to the head is up more
HOUSES- Easy pattern. Didn't have to change anything.
TEAM LOGOS- Red Wings, Pistons, U of M, Tigers, Lions (my own)
SHEEP (Bobbles the SheeP) (changed it a bit)
MOON & STARS - Do pattern in different colors next time
ABC/123- My own, but didn't turn out as good as I'd have liked... I may have to do something about that.) Looks way better after "duplicate" stitching on some color. Update: did the dup stitch as best I could with purls on RS... looks good though
The finished piece is knitted as one piece rather than doing all that seaming. It will use 7 different colors and be made up of 12 squares with different stuff in each square and quite likely have an outer border if I can figure out how to do that and get it done before the baby shower on Oct 14!

ALL DONE! See post listed at top of this thread for more information.
