I designed this blanket for Arianna, when she was born. It’s a very easy blanket with repetitive stitch. Originally I was not planning on writing up a pattern for it, but I’ve been asked a few times to make it available. So here you go! A special thank you to Christine for nagging me long enough !

With MC, ch 125 (or another multiple of 4+5 sts).
Row 1: Cluster (see Stitch Guide) in 4th ch from hook and every 4th ch across, dc in last ch, turn – 30 clusters.
