Shiloh’s Striped Blanket

I have finally finished this beautiful blanket for my baby nephew and I am so very excited to share the pattern with you! It only requires 2 stitches so it’s really quite simple. It’s recommended that baby blankets measure at least 40×60″, this ended up measuring 40.5×45.5″, if you want yours to be longer simply add in another block of color, any shade of blue, or even white would look gorgeous. Ready?? Let’s go!

(See stitch explanations at the very bottom)
