This beautiful blanket in four sizes (baby square/lap robe or crib blanket/throw/coverlet) is seriously simple to work yet has a mesmerizing surface pattern. Knitting it up in a deliciously lofty yarn on larger needles will keep the fabric light and warm, while allowing the texture to deepen. The easy-to work motif comprised of knits and purls will be pleasing for beginners and relaxing for more experienced knitters; it makes the perfect project for sideline knitting.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
