Born at Sea

Born at Sea was originally designed for my nephew, who was born on the west coast of Canada, and was inspired by the Pacific Ocean. Born at Sea uses 2 stitch cables and a texture pattern of knit and purl stitches; instructions for working 2 stitch cables without a cable needle are provided in the pattern notes. This pattern includes instructions for a baby blanket, wrap/shawl, and afghan/throw; instructions for further adjusting the length and width are included in the pattern. The stitch patterns are charted only.
