Oooo Baby Baby!

Commissioned baby blanket based on the 20+ year old tunisian Crocheted blanket that belongs to Baby-momma. The yarn is Berocco Comfort, with Cascade 220 superwash for the tassels. (The client requested both Tassels and a "mistake", so I did a tuck stitch on each side as a "boo-boo" which drove me NUTS. The pattern I designed turned out unexpectedly cool: Very "Op-Art" and the yarn colour was freaky close to the original.

Finished dimensions: 3' x 3'. Took 9 hours to knit. OY!
