I just finished this baby blanket, from The Knit Knack Kit by Kris Percival. The pattern was super easy, but required a lot of counting. The edges are done in seed stitch, and the middle in a knit five, purl five basket-weave stitch. I'm very pleased with it and would use the pattern again!

It looks warm!! (It's a bit cold here at the moment).
Beautiful job.
Is the true colour closer to the orange/coral or pink?

GREAT job on the blanket. I know the counting can be a pain!  My best friend knit us one for our first baby.  We all love it.  My daughter, who is now 2, likes to cuddle up under it when we read to her.  Our youngest daughter liked to play on it before she started crawling...now she won't sit still long enough!!

I made a whole slew of sweaters in that pattern way back in the seventies -- I have a real fondness for the pattern and think your blanket looks great...
