1. Mitered Butterflies Baby Blanket

A square blanket doesn’t have to be worked from the inside out, and this project is a nice example. Mitered means worked from one corner – building on two sides of the blanket only. Gootie decided to incorporate cute puff stitches that look like leaves on a stem.

Leonela used block stitch in the round and created a truly remarkable baby blanket.
