Notes

Super fun, and super clever pattern. I love that it’s completely seamless. The start was a bit wonky at first, but once I got the hang of it, this thing just flew. The border is really neat.

Use yarn doubled - will gobble more up and make it squishier. I pretty much hated the yarn when I swatched it but using it in this blanket redeems it big time.

Now, if I decide it’s not too big for a baby blanket, it will become a gift for Keith, my hair cutter - his first child, a daughter.

eta: my Mom ended up getting this, she really was smitten with it.

MOD: Knit to 79 stitches between markers so that pattern ends on Row 14 not 15. Based on a suggestion from another Raveler. Plenty big anyway!
MOD: Cast on 10 stitches for border, not 5.
