Finished size, 36 by 38 inches. This is such a unique pattern; no one will guess how you did it! It is a very easy 4 row repeat that creates puffed type stitches throughout. It is fun to knit, as it is to give as a gift! Great for newborn babies! And it is toasty warm, made with worsted weight yarns, and knitting needles, US # 10. So with this large needle size, work goes fast! Start now and make up lots of colors for extra gifts! You can leave the stripes off and make in all one color, if desired.
