Lullabies and Cradle songs are soothing pieces of music usually played for (or sung to) young children. This baby blanket starts flat (like my singing) and proceeds to have stitches picked up all around the edges to form the String Trio and Flight of the Bumble Bee border.

Sample shown using 3 colors : Bubblegum, Frost and Cerise.

Both a simple and an applied i-cord edging are described in the pattern.

Charts are provided for a stylized Double Bass, Cello, Violin and Viola and can be mixed and matched through the String Trio border.

Annually a portion of the pattern sales $ from this pattern will be donated to Arion Chamber Music
