Pattern number BB208
A very versatile (and reversible) pattern inspired by our favorite dishcloth. The Prairie Blanket can be knit to any size you like since you start in one corner, increase to desired size, then decrease to the final corner. At least one knitter we know of has made a queen-sized bedspread from this pattern.
