Who doesn’t love a sweet blanket for a sweet baby? This blanket is based on a simple checkerboard eyelet pattern that looks much more complicated than it is. This blanket was designed for a family of refugees who are starting over in the United States. My hope for them is that they will wrap their baby girl in its folds and raise her to feel safe and loved, as all babies deserve.

This blanket may be made in two sizes to fit your situation. The instructions are given for a small or “half” sized blanket that is appropriate for a car seat or bassinet, with instructions for a “full” sized blanket in parentheses.
