However, sometimes when we get home, we just can't find what we want, so I make something up. In this case, another friend saw it and wanted the pattern too, so here we are with a nice little patter that's really going to be one of the simplest you have ever attempted.
I've given a gauge for this, but it really isn't important. You can use whatever yarn and hook you like, and the finished size is up to you too. Please note, I do recommend going back to row one and inserting a row of SC every six rows. It helps to keep structure in the fabric and keeps a bit of a rein on your tension. You are of course free to skip it and repeat row 2 until you are done. ;)
I made this is a thin stole like garment, that could be wrapped around a snuggled baby a bit like you would see seaweed wrapped around sushi lol. (Well, they are cute enough to gobble up right? :P ) A full blanket to would require the baby to be moved to swaddle in, and the point of it done the way it was, was that the baby could be left still and asleep and a nice effect still achieved. I hope you like it as much as my friend likes hers. <3
