Thank you for the interest in the Educat and Edudog blanket patterns. They are available for purchase using PayPal for $10.00 each. My label there is marsmachineknitting. You need to have DAK (any version) and an electronic machine to download to. I do also have a hand knitting version.
The blanket is lined as you go and the edges are bound with multi-color Icord. I have made mine with acrylic so they would be easily washable. Any yarn that works with your machine is ok as long as the different colors are the same weight. I think the blanket would be ok to do on a garter carriage for the front, although I personally don't have the patience. The idea is like an "I spy" quilt where you have the child find the cat who is sad or the dog that looks like Harry Potter, etc.
If you wish to purchase, just email me with the address you'd like the pattern to be emailed to and I will send you an invoice.
Thanks again. If questions, just email me.
