5 x 36 circular needles
Gauge: 5.5 st/in
Finished size: 23.5” x 29.5”
Yarn: 60% cotton, 40% modal
Care: Machine wash warm, tumble dry low

Middle rectangle worked flat and bound off, stitches picked up for borders, edges bound off in Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bindoff, seeds done in combo of duplicate stitch and embroidery.

There was a lot of leftover yarn -- almost a full skein each of each color. I’m going to use mine to make accessories (hat, booties, etc.), but you may want to make the blanket larger/borders wider to avoid so much waste.
