I finally finished the baby blanket for my new nephew. He's about 3 1/2 weeks old now, so it's high time this went off his way.
Pattern: Climbing Roses by Shari Haux; published in "Quick Knits, Cool Projects"
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash, color #865
Size: 28 inches x 27 inches
Modifications: Oh, where to start! The pattern is for a full sized adult afghan, this is a baby blanket. The original is to be done in worsted, 220 is more of a DK weight yarn. The major modification was to the corners of the hems. The original has the top and bottom hems overlapping the side hem when finished, making the corners 4 layer thick. I didn't like that idea so I charted out increases at the beginning and decreases at the end to make a mitered corner.
A final wash and dry, and pack this up to send it off. Hope you like it, kiddo!
