Polka Dots have always been one of my favorite prints. It's like there is a party and who doesn't love a party?


I was so excited when I received a special order for a polka dotted baby blanket that I just had to write up a pattern to share with you!


This pattern is worked double stranded to make it sturdy and long lasting. This also supports the weight of the circles and keeps the blanket from bunching in the middle.


You can purchase the PDF pattern in all of my shops. GSHandmade, Etsy. Ravelry
