What materials did you use? I used Phildar Tweed d'Ete sport weight cotton/acrylic blend yarn for the pictured blanket. Your choice of any sport weight yarn appropriate for baby is encouraged; e.g. Caron Simply Soft Baby or Bernat Baby Coordinates.

What are you most proud of? Of all the gifts given at a baby shower for my niece (and some of them were quite high-priced), this is the one that was oohed and aahed over the most. It really feels good when something made with my hands is appreciated so much.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice on just 30 or 45 stitches. There is just one yarn over pattern row, and the other 3 rows are just plain knit and purl. But on the pattern row, there are 2 stitch sequences that are a bit uncommon (they are the ones that give the stitch pattern it's distinctive texture and lovely sculpted lines. By practicing on the smaller sample, you can let you hands get into the rhythm and build your confidence before committing to a lot of stitches for a full-size baby blanket.

Elegantly Simple Baby Blanket is a multiple of 15 stitches. The closest multiple of 15 that is between 200 and 216 would be 210 stitches. (i.e. 210 is evenly divisibly by 15 = 14 times) Have fun with your Elegantly Simple Baby Blanket!
