Created By: S Ritterbusch
Materials: As I couldn't locate the yarn as required in the pattern (Cotton Ease), I used double-stranded, four balls of Bernat brand "Softee Baby" yarn in the color "Baby Denim Marl". I used size 10 bamboo circular needles - 29". Also, used soft stitch ring markers as my guides when changing stitches.

Wanted to knit a traditional baby blanket for a co-worker's shower. I thought the double-strand weight would be perfect. It turned out lovely. I added a few extra rows to the overall length as it was not as long as I hoped, so it can be used thru the toddler years. And, as you are constantly changing stitches (seed/purl/knit) it was easier to use the stitch markers as your guides so you don't have to stop and count stitches all the time. Didn't take long at all to complete. I have used the basket-weave stitch in previous scarf patterns and found it emphasized the light/shadow of this stitch combo best if you used light-colored yarn. Therefore, for this blanket I used a light denim/white combo yarn, which highlights the cross-hatch to its best advantage.
