I work at The Little Knittery in Atwater Village California and not a day goes by with out an expectant Mom or grand Mom coming in looking for a Baby Blanket Pattern to buy and although we do have several of my Designs for sale I figured why not one more.

I'm enjoying this project. I have tried two other times to knit this Design and I have not been happy. The concept is to start with a two color repeat pattern that begins with two knit rows and with every two color repeat increase the rows by two. The other shawl were rectangles and the results were too subtle. I think this is the one!

It's all about Stripes!!! The pattern is on RAVELRY
I’m totally into stripes at the moment. They are so cheerful and I find them hard to resist. That being said I think this would look great as a solid top as well. This top/poncho is knit in two pieces bottom up but sewn together so you wear it side to side. It’s easy to knit and, has a wonderful drape and looks great on all body types.
SIZE: Small 32-34”, Medium 35-37”, and Large 38-40”, XL 41-44” Bust
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 24.5 (27.5, 30.5, 33.5)” wide 49 (55, 61, 67)” round x 19 (20, 21, 22 ) long.
