Island Wools

Simply Smashing Blanket Pattern

Simply Smashing is a fun and addictive pattern to knit.  I loved this lace pattern when I used it to make a sweater for one of my children and felt it would make a cozy baby or lap blanket.  Change the yarn & needles to suit your tastes, but of course, size will vary.  Blanket pictured is the medium size.
