While searching for a blankie pattern for a new blankie for big brother S, I found this lovely afghan pattern in Sarah Dallas Knitting that I thought would be perfect for wee one on the way. I resized it to be a 36" square and picked bright, girly colors in Ella Rae Worsted and Cascade 220. The three texture patterns were really fun to knit and since it's worked in strips, it was pretty fast to make (nesting knitting helped things go real fast!). And the crochet seam took no time at all. If she doesn't love it, her mommy sure will!
