Bedazzled Baby Blanket

Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This afghan is a direct result of a request of a member to create an afghan based on the pattern stitch used in the Spring Fling Toilet Tissue Cover. The resulting look is dazzling hence the name. Each of the 2 strands of yarn are carried up the side, and not cut, as you work and change colors after every 2 rows.
