A mix of the vintage and contemporary in this baby blanket worked in a striking pattern reminiscent of a mermaid's scales, with a modern rolled edging.
The main blanket is worked flat, in two colours. Stitches are picked up around the edge and joined in the round to make the rolled border.
Photo tutorials showing how to work the special stitch are included, for both right and left-handed knitting. Plus bonus instructions for a mermaid washcloth!
