I love this throw. I have made it 3 different ways. One as pattern shows. It was nice. The 2nd I added 5 knit stitch to each end and 90 stitches wide. I made this one for me, an adult. I use it when I travel on airplanes. It's easy to travel with. The 3rd I made as a baby blanket. I used a multi color yarn as the main yarn and then used 3-5 complimentary yarns. It is a beautiful baby blanket. I love this pattern. It is easy to knit. I have only been knitting for 5 months.

I made this blanket with a few changes.
I cast on 76 stitches and used a size 15 circular needle.
I knit the first and last 4 rows of the blanket in seed stitch and then knit the first and last 4 stitches of each subsequent rown in seed stitch. This made a very nice border which also keeps the blanket flatter.
I also chose one neutral color Vanna's Dusty Green and kept it throughout, only changing the second color. (I did not use the Cottonease, just used Vanna's for all colors: two strands held together.)
I did not know if the baby was going to be a girl or boy so used a nice variety of colors.
The blanket turned out so nice! Very cushy to the touch and a nice size.

I made this blanket for a baby boy. I used Cotton-ease seaspray, stone, maize, violet, lime and VC Baby lamb, aqua, little boy blue, duckie and sweet pea. I was able to make two blankets with the yarn I purchased. On one of the blankets I cast on an extra 20 stitches and added about 10 rows

This a beautiful and easy to take a long project. Great gift too. Made a boy version for a friend. Made one more for home to bomb my sofa cushion and another one for granny to wear in her wheelchair - most colorful lap blanket in the nursing home!

I loved working on this throw. I was also able to get 2 blankets out of the yarn. And I did a 5 k stitch on all 4 sides, so it doesn't roll. In the next one,I'm going to switch out the pinks for blues, just in case my grandchild due in March, 2013 is a boy!

This was so very easy and mindless! I added garter stitch on all edges to keep the edges from curling. I also used my own variation of colors and altered the pattern a bit. My favorite part were the knit flowers I added at one end!

I am a beginner knitter and I made this for my sis-in-law earlier this year. She didn't know if she was having a boy or a girl or I changed out the pinks for orange colors. It is such a gorgeous blanket!! It is a really big blanket. I am now going to start one for a friend who is having a boy so again, I changed out the the pinks for some orange and cream colored yarn. I added 3 K stitches at both ends so the blanket wouldn't roll and lay more flat.

I loved working this pattern up. I am a new knitter, and found it super easy to follow. I plan on making it again very soon, however, next time I will double it, as I thought it was rather small when finished.

Loved how this turned out. Great project for a beginner. I think that the rolled edges add interest. Was able to complete two throws from the yarn.

This is so cute! I just finished mine last night and I love the way the pattern turned out. I didnt have all the colors that it called for, but I made it with a dark red, black, grey and white, and I also did about two rows on the bottom with a heavier yarn so that the blankie will kinda stay put... I am also going to figure out how to knit letters so I can put the baby's name on the blanket. Love this...
