Pattern Description:

Silverlace Blanket: Make the ultimate in fine lace for your child! Lace square motifs are worked in white sport weight yarn for the featured blanket; it will look equally stunning in colors of your choice. Rows of scallop edging add both style and depth, letting the piece drape beautifully any way it is worn. Trim it with soft green satin ribbon and matching ladybug accents, for a sweet spring touch.

IMAGINE THIS: Use the popcorn edging of the Tropicana Blanket for added texture. Opt for wool or mohair yarn to make a blanket suitable for colder weather. You can even add metallic or silvery threads to make this blanket the perfect holiday gift!

Tropicana Blanket: Welcome the summer with the coolest beach blanket ever! Each lace square motif is worked in layers of soothing color, and joined to contrasting motifs for visual interest. Watch the central flower pop out of each motif! Made with worsted-weight yarn and a size H/8 (5 mm) hook, the blanket is soft and comfortable yet sturdy enough for beach and outdoor use. Sure to be a summer favorite, it is finished with a lively popcorn border to protect the edges from fraying!
IMAGINE THIS: Use the scallop edging of the Silverlace Blanket to add to the overall size and more sophisticated look.
