And THEN.....................With some of the Leftover Yarns I made a Cute Little Cuddly Blankie for Baby to HUG !!!!!!!
I just made the Blankie up as I went along... I casted on 27 stitches and did a garter stitch border of 5 stitches..
So start your square with five garter rows..
At the top end of the square I joined the second yarn and made the same square..
Then I did another set of two squares togetner and whipped stitched the two panels together..
Very Simple and Very Mindless as My Friend Barbara said !!!
I am Very Good at Simple & Mindless Things !!! LOL
Mine came out to be about 19 X 19.. Just Perfect for Hugging and for a little car seat cover!

I really love how your blanket came out. So Cute!! How many skeins of organic cotton did you use? I made the ruffle baby blanket ( must had made it larger) but it ended up with 8 skeins of yarn instead of 4.

That is beautiful! Even as an adult I want to curl up into it. It looks so soft and comforting.

I love the neutral colors too. That's what really sets it off. Yay for going non-traditional!

What pattern did you use?
