Show and Tell: Bellybutton Baby Blanket

Lara Neel (of the Math4Knitters podcast) designed a gorgeous baby blanket using six skeins of glorious Malabrigo Rios, a machine-washable, worsted-weight yarn that is hand-dyed and to-die-for! This is what she had to say about it:

"When I saw how this yarn just about glows with color, I knew I needed to do something that would accentuate those color changes. So, I made up a stitch pattern that's easy to work, but adds fun ripples into the design. As a bonus, the center of the blanket has a little bellybutton - I love it because it's a reminder that a baby is a new start! Of course, I think you should use this yarn, but it would also be a good stashbuster project."

Thanks, Lara! It's so pretty!
