One of the hospital employees asked me to knit a blanket for a grandchild. The yarn is from my stash - Caron Simply Soft in a soft ivory, called Fisherman.
It is knit, double-stranded, on size 13 needles. The pattern is #EBB09 designed by JoAnne Turcotte and published in the 8-Hour Baby Blanket book, Plymouth Yarn, 2007. The book price ranges from $5 to $8, so look around for a good price.
Two skeins of yarn (3 ounces each) created nearly 10 inches. I am pleased with the pattern and the look of the blanket.
