At first I felt weird about making a black and white baby blanket, but by the time I finished it I loved it! I made it for friends whose nursery is black and white with accents of lemon yellow. I washed it before mailing it off to make sure all the ends stayed woven in and I was pleasantly surprised that washing it made the pattern really open up.

Dimensions: 36" wide x 44" long
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft in Black, White, and Soft Yellow
Needles: Size 9
Pattern: My own - modified from my Feather and Fan Shawl pattern

A lot of literature I've seen says the contrasting black and white patterns are good for eye development. Smiley

Beautiful job! I love the wavy ripples more than the ubiquitous zig-zags.
