Brick Pattern Baby Blanket

The pattern for this blanket comes from the Barbara Walker Treasury. It's also found as a very popular dishcloth pattern in the USA, known as the "ballband" dishcloth. A search of Ravelry will show an awesome range of colour combinations and examples which are inspirational.

I've made a couple of dishcloths and use them in my kitchen as oven mitt/pot holder type things. And I've made a couple of blankets before. But this blanket was special and I took months to decide on the size (small to fit a baby capsule), the yarn (Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply cotton) and the colours.

I've got a million ideas for colours and can't wait to make more.
