This pattern is relatively easy and fast to knit.
It has a convenient colored chart, and easy way to estimate how much yarn you’ll need.

The directions are for Baby and stroller blanket, but the chart will work nicely for:

  • Lap quilt / lapghan.
  • Full size afghan.
  • Tapestry / wall hanging.
  • Fun pillow.
  • Nautical bag.

All you need to do is change the size. This is easily done by changing yarn and needles, or by adding extra stitches on the edges.

Skills needed : reading colored chart, stranding, intarsia, and double crochet for the border (or do a border of your choice).
Time: about 7 hours to knit the picture itself, without the border.

Yarn & Needles :
The chart can be knitted with any yarn and needles.
For a thick big blanket use thick yarn and big needles.
For a smallish thing, like a stroller blanket, use thin yarn and thin needles.
This project provides a good opportunity to use up your yarn stash.
