This very soft and airy receiving blanket is knit in one piece!! There are NO seams to sew and nothing to irritate baby's delicate skin. Using just three colors makes this project quite manageable; however, use as many "butterfly blocks" across as desired, and knit to any length desired. I used Caron "Simply Soft" 100% acrylic yarn, but using thicker yarn (and possibly larger needles - size 10?) will create a wider and longer blanket without adding additional blocks - you choose.
I love to create baby blankets with airiness to them for safety's sake.
12-19-12 - NOTE: Correction to Row 15: there should be a comma after k4 --> k4, (k2tog, yo) twice. This has been corrected in the pattern!
Each butterfly motif is approx. 8 x 5 inches using Caron Simply Soft Yarn.
The edging is approx. 1.25 - 1.5 inches

I have been knitting for 58 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together!
I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any of your questions or concerns.
You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern.
Thank you and happy knitting!
