The Pattern is the Exceptional Doily by Mary Werst. The original pattern is meant to be a 13" doily.
I used the entire skein of pound of love and had just enough to finish! I wish there had been enough left to do a fancy boarder. The finished size is around 40 inches. This blanket took about 7 hours start to finish. I love the way it worked up. I am going to make one in blue, using a smaller hook size- Hopefully this will make the finished piece a bit smaller and leave enough yarn for nice edge.
I do believe that this will be my go-to baby blanket. It was very well received at the baby shower (as told by my S.I.L.-I could not attend due to work).
