I named this baby blanket Tiny Tulips not only because it’s the color name of the variegated yarn that I used, but also because the shells used in this stitch do slightly remind me of tulips.
This baby blanket is made using exactly one ball (892 yards) of Bernat Baby Sport yarn. The stitch is simple enough, involving only two repeating rows. In case you would like to use this stitch for another project, it’s a multiple of 8, plus 1.
Finished size: 37 by 26 inches
