Dawn Brocco's fun baby blanket, Pumpkin Patch, is shown in doubled strands of Cascade Yarns Eco+ Peruvian wool yarn. The pumpkin blocks are portable, which is helpful when working on a large project. The blanket is comprised of six whole and four half blocks. Each block is mattress stitched or slip stitch crocheted to its neighbor, then the rows of blocks are duplicate stitched together. The seed stitch edging is worked one side at a time. The pumpkin stems are knit, then sewn on. The couched vine tendrils lend the final embellishment.
