I wanted to design a reversible baby blanket, and much to my surprise, I discovered after knitting this blanket that not only is it reversible, but that it appears remarkably three dimensional as well. For best results in creating this fascinating effect, use a light toned, solid color yarn.

Milestones is conveniently written in 4 sizes ranging from a lovie to an adult throw. The seed stitch border flows seamlessly into the body of the blanket, and the slipped stitch edging makes for a tailored border.

Instructions are clearly charted and written with full abbreviations for personal preference. All measurements are given in US and metric.
