Good day, all!
This is the project that has had me consumed for several days now. I ran across this Pinterest post last week and pinned it. My cousin mentioned having trouble reading charts, so I offered to write it out for her. Once I started on it, and started posting pictures on Instagram people were going crazy over it. Imagine my surprise! lol
I have even had several people in my personal Facebook life that have asked for the pattern. That has only served to spur me toward the finish line with this little beauty.
The pattern itself is so simple, and memorize-able (word?), that you can allow yourself to have fun with it after you get the hang of it. I will tell you this, though, when you are zipping along throwing all your trc clusters in there, remember you always need three in the center. I made the mistake several times of not really watching what I was doing and had to rip out a couple rows in order to correct it. I typically love to "hide" my mistakes instead of ripping out, but you simply can't hide a missing trc cluster. lol.
The finished size of the baby blanket is approximately 46" x 32". Very generous for a baby blanket, and if you use the "soft" yarns, it is like a warm, squishy cloud.
Corrections: For those that picked the pattern up before May 12, 2014:
There is an error in Row 1. There should only be one ch2, sk 6, sc in next stitch, ch2, sk 6 between trc clusters. I put my asterisk in the wrong spot.
And "sm" space, stands for "Same Space"
One of the many beautiful things about this particular pattern is that you don't have to put a border on it when you're done, unless you want to. I chose not to, because the sides sort of finish themselves off. Plus, there is so much movement going on inside the bulk of the blanket, I didn't want anything to take away from it's beauty, or make it an eyesore. I hope you enjoy this pattern!
