Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round

Pattern Description:

This design was made to co-ordinate with a nautical nursery theme. Because I wanted the stripes to circle the blanket without carrying multiple balls of yarn, I designed it to be center out. The 'zig-zag- design in one of the outer rings puckers just enough to give the 'waves' a 3 dimensional feel.
