Baby Blanket with Rosette, Vintage Free Pattern
I'm guessing that this baby blanket pattern creates a cute little blanket -- it's 26.5 by 35.5 inches.
Now the picture is on the lousy side. It almost qualifies to be from one of the 1950s Workbaskets. But no, this one is from a 1966 issue of Fashion Craft. It is knitted with a diamond motif, has rosettes in the center and a crocheted edge. I'm sure it has more potential than the picture shows. It would be cute for newborn baby and fun for baby just a little older ... occupying himself/herself for hours getting a hold on those little rosettes !
