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.
