Cloudburst Baby Blanket Pattern

Note: This is a revised pattern as of April 5, 2018.  The first one was incorrect and missing information.  I sincerely apologize for any frustration!

This is my first attempt at a baby blanket.  The feather and fan stitch is widely used in many baby blanket patterns; this is an adaptation of various patterns specifically designed to highlight the beautiful (new for 2018) dappled colors of Juniper Moon Farm's Cumulus.

The blanket is "baby carrier" sized - and uses approximately 500 yards of Cumulus. You can block the finished blanket to make it larger, but as a mom of twins I loved smaller blankets that didn't get caught on everything while I was trying to load them into the car.

Update: Kits have now been posted for sale, and save 1/3 of the price of buying three skeins of yarn.
