Here's another of my patterns for Schaefer Yarns, finally switched over to my format (well... to The Garter Belt format). This blanket was also part of my "handpainted thick-n-thin yarn in garter stitch" phase (a phase which may return at any moment, since there's something very satisfying about that combination!).

You can't fully see it in this picture, but the blanket looks like 4 panels of garter stitch on the bias, although the sections were actually formed by increasing and decreasing across a single row.

And look how squishy the fabric is!
