I finished my friend S's little boy (K's) big brother blanket this week. This is the older brother of the baby I did the swirley blanket for. It's a simple v/shell stitch alternation which I find to be an easy and fast pattern to do. It's also pretty resilient for toddlers to carry around or abuse without doing much damage.
I texted my friend when I finished the blanket and said she could tell the baby that she can come now.
