Notes

Love this blanket. Don’t even have a baby in mind for it, but couldn’t resist casting on. This way, I get the pleasure of its cheery company until someone gets up the duff. Score!

Project photos updated 22 April to include pic of baby Sebastian, two days old.

Blocked blanket measures 101 x 56cm.

Mods:
107 stitches.
6 pattern repeats (18 stripes total).
Ripped back sewn bind off, added one extra RS row to final chevron, cast off purlwise - prefer the look of this edge. Better mirrors the lovely zig-zag at the other end.

Other than that, knitted exactly as Tash’s original design. Because you cannae improve on perfection.
