FO: Bath blanket

The second FO I managed to finish under the radar for Charmaine's surprise baby shower was a blanket that I have dubbed "wash wash wash" (the name was inspired by my niece) as it is 100% organic cotton and in my mind it is the perfect blanket to cuddle your little bundle of joy in after a bath.

It was hard to give away! It's just so cuddly!


Pattern: I cant really say that I made up this pattern but what I can say is that I made a hybrid of a couple different patterns to knit this. It's knit corner to corner with a seed stitch boarder. I knit the 4 stitches of the boarder then I increased by one stitch at the beginning of the stockinette of each row then when I reached the desired width I decreased in the same manner.
Yarn:I used 6 skeins of Rowan Purelife with 2 held together
Needles: Size US 7's
Mods: None (see pattern details) : D

I'm very happy with the way this came out and I hope Charmaine and her bump enjoy it too!
