The next baby binkie

Baby blanket, knitted, chevron stitch, organic undyed cotton, size 7 cable needle.

The previous blankie was so enjoyable that when I received the announcement of the birth of my friend's first daughter I got the needles and the organic cotton out right away!  The blanket is about 20x30.  I am using Pakucho cotton, which is selected for color rather than dyed.  It's beautifully soft, although I still don't have a grip on how much it shrinks.  But I figure it will do very well in the washer and dryer and generally be a blanket that doesn't have to be saved for special occasions.
