Pattern Description:

All 15 motifs are charted with written instructions provided.

There are 2 blanket designs included in this pattern Lighthouse Magic and Nature's Child. Yardage listed will make one blanket.

Lighthouse Magic features the following motifs: a lighthouse, seahorse, octopus, starfish, moon, dragonfly, sailboat and anchor.

Nature's Child features the following motifs: a lighthouse, butterfly, dragonfly, tulip, apple, tree, maple leaf and heart.

The 15 reversible motifs included provide many other possible design combinations ~ create a tulip garden using only the Tulip square and the Double Moss square and perhaps a Butterfly or Dragonfly for the center; create an animal theme or maritime theme....

As well as mixing and matching the 15 motifs, here are some other ideas:
~ instead of using a soft cotton, like the samples on the cover, use a wool/blend when extra warmth is needed;
~ use colours to match the nursery or make all squares the same colour;
~ make the blanket smaller or larger just by changing the number of squares;
~ use one or more squares to make matching pillows or washcloths;
~ knit individual squares for an easy "travelling" project, or knit it as a one-piece item to avoid seaming later.

So, there are many ways to use this pattern over and over again with beautifully fresh results!
