From Pattern Notes:
When one of my closest friends announced she was pregnant I knew I had to make her a blanket. It needed to be more interesting than just a plain old rectangle, as the mom-to-be is a very talented knitter herself. So the Bliss Blanket, named after its recipient, was born.
The blanket is done in entrelac with a twist; rather than plain stockinette the rectangles are done in a mistake rib. The superwash wool is perfect for a new mom; just throw it in the washing machine, no muss, no fuss.
Difficulty Level: Intermediate
