Little white whales swim in the waves around this sweet baby blanket. The soothing two-tone design, worked in the round in light weight washable wool, is perfect for snuggling and on-the-floor playtime.

The blanket is worked in the round from a chart in Extended Single Crochet, Tapestry Extended Single Crochet and Tapestry Double Crochet stitches that create crisp color transitions. The single-color rounds are worked without carrying the yarn, allowing the stitcher to reset tension, which is critical to the success of the design. As the pattern stitch may tend to lean, blocking is strongly recommended.
