Micah's Baby Blanket

Micah’s Baby Blanket pattern gives two sizes: a baby sized and a sofa sized blanket. This blanket was initially knit in a cozy cotton, but a soft superwash wool would be an excellent choice too. This pattern is not difficult, but does require counting and an ability to recognize the developing pattern. This blanket is worked in "patches" joined by vertical and horizontal bands of garter stitch. Each "patch" is 24 stitches wide by 30 rows tall. The vertical bands are 3 stitches wide and the horizontal bands are 6 rows tall.

I can't believe there are no comments here on your beautiful afghan! I think this is exactly what my niece wants for her expected baby!
