All in all, I very much like this pattern and the blanket that is emerging. When finished, it is supposed to be blocked flat - I'm not sure I will do that. I kind of like the little "bumps". They look almost like little pillows to me.
The above pictures represent 6 pattern repeats (each pattern repeat is 12 rows). The whole blanket will be 24 repeats so I am about 25% done. Right now it measures 15 3/4" long (I didn't measure the width because I didn't want to take it off the needles-lazy, I know) - so by the time it is done, it will be a little longer than 60" - a respectably sized blanket.
