Oh, Baby!

I was looking through some knitting patterns that I have written and found this one.  It’s my favorite and although it takes a lot of time if you use something like a worsted weight yarn (which I did) the result is really cool.  The gauge and needle size really don’t matter.  Just use a yarn you like and a needle that is suggested for that yarn.  I lined the back with a piece of flannel cut to size and then tacked to knit piece to the flannel with pieces of yarn.
