Basil is available in the Kelbourne Woolens Baby Collection and also as an individual PDF download.

Basil begins from the center out on dpns. You will move to the circular needle when the circumference is too large to fit comfortably on the dpns. Increases are worked every other round. Only ¼ of the blanket is charted. Work charts 4 times across to complete the round. When placing markers, you may find it helpful to use a different (color or type) marker for the beg of the round. When working all lace charts, slip the markers as you come to them.
