I found the pattern for this baby blanket on the website of a Project Linus chapter (can't remember which one right now). I made it this week in Caron One Pound Rose. It worked up very fast and is softer than I had thought. Rose is one of my favorite colors, so even though I'm tempted to keep it, I'll donate this one and put a larger one on my WIM list for me. Underneath is a close-up of the stitch. Usually I put the link and not the photo inserted into
the message, so I hope this is sized correctly. Thanks for looking, Patty

Wow, that's gorgeous! I love the texture. I might have to make a scarf out of that, as an experiment.

That turned out beautiful. I've always overlooked that pattern because they hadn't provided a photo of the finished product, but only a drawing. I'm so glad you posted these. :clap
