Great pattern - I love making blankets but always hate the beginning chain, even with fsc. This took care of that issue by starting with a corner and growing out from there. Pattern from Ravelry user Catherine J. Watson. Once you get to those middle rows, it feels like its taking forever, but once you start back down, it flies by! Debating on a border, but otherwise consider this done! Would certainly make this again!

I love your blanket! The colors are adorable and it looks very snuggly. : )

What a great concept!  I hate the rounds that get bigger and bigger, so this would be such a relief.

Love the corner-to-corner pattern. I have a giant afghan on my sofa right now.

Oh, I love this idea! I hate blankets because they can be so tedious, but with the increasing and decreasing, well... maybe I could make this work for me. Thank you so much for posting. I absolutely love the yarn colorway. I can just see a beautiful baby cuddling up in this. Great job!

There is a thin, semantic line separating weird and beautiful. And that line is covered in jellyfish. - Welcome to Night Vale

AAhhhhh...also known as the "no brainer" or the Diagonal Box Stitch. I love this pattern, and I love your blanket. I've made two of these and they both tickled me pink. I'm thinking of making another for charity. Nice work!! Thank you for the inspiration  Grin
