Fiber Dreams 44 Amaryllis PDF
This pattern was inspired by another fiber art design. Laura Patterson took a quilting pattern she owned and redesigned it to make this lovely knit baby blanket for a friend's new baby girl. While this blanket is small enough for a baby, you could easily enlarge it by adding more repeats. This blanket is knit in columns, with each column attached to the previous column while knitting. The result is a blanket made without any seaming or sewing.
