Dawn Brocco's adorable Watermelon Baby Blanket is knit with doubled strands of Cascade Yarns' Eco+ Peruvian wool yarn. The easy-to-knit watermelon shape is knit in the round, from the center out, into a large circle. Short rows turn the circle into an oval. The watermelon seeds are embroidered on last. What baby wouldn't look even more precious lying under or on top of this blanket!
