Baby’s First Principles
Give your little one—and her descendants—a head start after the apocalypse with this baby blanket illustrating the most important principle of survival: avoid radiation. Even if the survivors forget what the radiation hazard symbol means, this blanket’s motifs warn of its dangers. The center section is a large-scale all-over pattern depicting the radiation trefoil. The blanket is edged with two bands of motifs- the inner border is a small pattern of skulls, showing that the trefoil indicates danger. The outer border has running figures, illustrating the need to flee areas and objects labeled with the trefoil. Truly, the A-B-C’s of the future.
This pattern is in the book Doomsday Knits, which is currently available at cooperativepress.com, as well as here on Ravelry.
You should have 16 stitches -- 4 repeats -- at the end of round 1, not 12.
