Only one square a month for 9 months is all it takes to complete this lightweight washable baby blanket. Using DPN's and circular needles, the 9 Patch squares are each knit completely in the round from the center out.
(Expectant mothers who don't knit - consider a 9 Patch baby shower; simply recruit 9 knitters, divide the yarn, and they'll have it done in no time!)
Finished size: Approx. 30" x 30"
Yarn: for each of the 9 squares: 25 grams (approx. 100 yards) of washable fingering weight yarn for the crocheted border frame: 100 grams (approx. 400 yards) of solid fingering weight yarn. Note: use an unexpected color to dramatically frame the project.
