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. The hardest part of the project is carrying all the stitches as the blanket becomes bigger and bigger. At the end I was using both a 60" + a 29" circular needle to handle all the stitches. I used 600 yards of the blue yarn, and 400 yards of the cream total for both items. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round GAUGE 22 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inch in stockinette stitch. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 32"x32" SUGGESTED YARN 1000 yards of Sport weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Appalachian Organic Cotton COLORWAY natural, blue

I’m a mid-western farm girl transplanted to the West Coast. I learned to knit in my 8th grade home-ec class. My first major project as a beginner was making a lacy knit stole for my Grandmother. After a long hot summer of knitting, it won first prize at the county 4-H fair and a second place at the Indiana State Fair. I’ve continued to knit off and on for over 40+ years. I prefer simpler projects like blankets and scarves because I’ve don’t like sewing pieces together. Semi-retirement has given me the time to explore new ways to be creative with my knitting. Hope you like what you see. Happy Knitting.
