    Each row of this blanket pattern is spelled out for you for accuracy and ease in working the design.  The gauge is 3.5 sts = 1” in worsted weight yarn on a size 8 needle.  The finished blanket measures approximately 30” X 35”.  For best results, choose a yarn that is at least 25% natural fiber, as blanket must be blocked. 

    You will need to be familiar with the long-tail cast-on, knitting, purling, working yarn overs and decreases, and manipulating stitches.  Follow the stitch-by-stitch, row-by-row instructions, and you should have no problem.  Directions are given for the multicolor version. If you are doing yours in one color, ignore the references to cutting, making bobbins, and changing colors. Here is what you will need; refer to photo for placement of colors and leaves:
