I made this for my friend Tara... The "base blanket" and the fish are both patterns found on Ravelry - but the layout is all from my noggin.

I LOVE this blanket pattern. It's not a free pattern so I don't want to go too much into detail. Although I think I can say that  I did change a few things. I used a worsted weight yarn instead of a DK weight and chained 175 stitches to get a bigger blanket. However, I didn't increase my hook size to keep my stitches tighter for sewing my fishes. I also crocheted into the back stitch only to get the line in each row.

The fish pattern was also from Ravelry. It was free. I used DMC embroidery floss folded in thirds and a size 1 hook. I like embroidery floss for these types of projects because it comes in seemingly unlimited colors.

I wrote a blog about it if anyone wants more information. I think that pretty much sums it up! Smiley

Ha! You have no idea how many times I'd get frustrated and I'd think maybe this really big branch is dying and it has no flowers, or somebody picked them all off. She should learn the harsh realities of life while she's young. Smiley

So, the stitch did come from the one part of blanket that followed the pattern i purchased. However, I think it's ok to share (since its not the actual pattern)??
