This seems like a great blanket to knit for a baby shower I have to go to next month. I think the pattern would look nice in white or soft, buttery yellow. But from the comments below, I am a bit confused about the pattern. Has anyone used the instructions given above to make the blanket successfully?

I started knitting this lovely blanket when after knitting several rows I noticed that the right side (end), showed a solid knitted 8 rows, and the wrong side showed a pattern side. Upon reading the directions the rows 4, 6, and 8 only stated "repeat row 2"; it should state Row 4 - Repeat row 1, Row 5 - Repeat row 2,. It was necesssary for me to rip out the erroneous knitter rows and start over again with great success. Love this delightful baby blanket -- I recommend you print a corrected version

aroryl 9249791 did you really mean for Row 5 to repeat row 2? or should this be for the row 6. or should row 5, as written be for row 6? I noticed no correction had been made to the pattern as yet.
