Love this simple garter stitch blanket, though first time working worsted, aran, medium weight yarns on a US 5 needle; I found it hard on my hands.
My boss requested a baby afghan and this was my go to pattern, though I notice that the name of the pattern has changed. Thankfully, I was still able to find the pattern.
The original plan was royal blue and white, then when I saw this was a three-color scheme, I could not do it becuase I had no light blue. And now that I am writing about this, that was about the time I decided to order yarn. When the person requesting this blanket, found out the yarn was on order, she insisted use what I had on hand. I went with this turquoisy color because I wanted to maintain original color scheme as much as possible. Anyway, now she is complaining about the color. I could remake but by the time I finished the kid would be eighteen!
