So cute in STRIPES!!! Reviewed by Dar Brown on 2011-05-22 *****
This is a quick and simple pattern, perfect for gifts! I've made it a number of times in Homespun, but this time I tried STRIPES in Baby's First cotton bulky-weight yarn. I used 2 skeins each of Beanstalk and Fairy Tale. With size 11 needles, the blanket measures about 28" along each edge. Have fun! --Darla in California
