Pattern Description:

With a super nifty stitch pattern that provides stretch and texture, and looks much more challenging than it is--the Irish Sea Blanket is perfect to welcome a new baby or make for yourself in any size you want! It has fabulous texture and works up really quickly. Plus, you can make it up in any colors you wish to suit your style and decor!

The pattern includes:
~stitch abbreviations, special stitches and notes sections
~complete materials list including yarn types, colors and quantities
~a thoroughly tested and clearly written pattern (US terms) including border instructions
