This blanket looks bigger than it really is. In fact, it measures 15.5" x 16.5" and will eventually go off to PreemiesUK. I used just 73g of Patons Baby Fab which is machine washable and can also go into a tumble dryer.
This pattern is called Daphne's Blanket and the end result is rows of puffy lozenge shapes. It used to be on the Wye Needlecraft website together with a lot of other similar blanket patterns. Sadly, the patterns are no longer online. But, luckily, I printed the pattern pages some time ago.
The Wye Needlecraft patterns are intended to use just one 100g ball of dk yarn as the blankets are for special care baby units. However, they are easily adaptable for any ply yarn and any size. I am going to knit a couple of these in 4 ply yarn. If I really like them, I will then knit some larger blankets in dk yarn.
