Were you in the chatroom the other night? This pattern seems very familiar.

It's really turning out quite lovely!

No I wasn't. I don't go into the chat room. Don't have the time.

Oh, ok. Someone else is making something with this pattern.

P.S. I won't have time for a while either...classes just got revved up...lucky me.

I can't wait to see a picture of the blanket when it's finished!

That is really beautiful! Thanks for posting the pattern. I am looking to do a baby blankie with a bunch of yarn I have and I may try your pattern.

I LOVE THIS YARN by Hobby Lobby is the yarn. It is much softer than Red Heart. It doesn't have the high sheen that Caron Simply Soft has and for 7oz. skeins, it only cost $2.49 each. Twice the amount of Caron for the same price. It comes in pretty colors too. There is a larger selection online. Just do a search for the brand.
I used the color buttercup

Thank you so much for that. If I can ask another question, how many stitches did you cast on, or how many multiples of 18? I'd like to make something like this for my niece, but she's almost 2, so I want it a little bit bigger than a traditional baby blanket.

Thanks again. Can't wait to see the finished product.

I cast on 7 multiples of 18 plus 8 (4 for each side). It is now 18" long and I still have some left of the first skein.

Jessica, 10 multiples should be plenty wide for your niece.

Thanks everyone for your support and kind words. Back to the blanket.
