Now that the intended recipient has received this, I can post!
This is the Baby Tree of Life Throw, from the Lion Brand site. It's a miniature version of the adult-sized Tree of Life Throw.
I used Size 8 needles instead of the recommended Size 7, as I found I got gauge with 8. I used Lion Brand's Pound of Love in Antique White, which was fine to work with. I have a lot left over!
After consulting with some mothers, I decided to forgo the loops in the pattern and the eyelets in the border pattern. Instead, I did a cabled border and for the Flower Bed, I ended up going with a tulip pattern I found here:
It’s called “Bloom” by Lindy Meeker. I took the basic tulip design and multiplied it across the blanket.
The cable border came out nicely, but it took me the ages to do. I sewed it onto the blanket as I went along, to save myself a lot of sewing at the end. I then connected the ends of the border by kitchener stitch.
The recipient was overjoyed and plans to use it as a carriage/stroller blanket!
