And here is a picture of it all laid out. I wish you could feel how soft the yarn is!!

- I did an additional pattern repeat in the center to make a larger blanket.
- The blanket is knit on the diagonal: you cast on two stitches, then increase one stitch each row until you get to the center, then you start decreasing until you get back to two stitches. For some reason, the start and middle corners are nice and round, but the finish corner is pointy. :( I don't like that.
*Incidentally, the same observation applies to my experience in law school. Should have dropped out after the first year when I had the chance....
