Thanks Vonnie , that will be my next project. It will be great to keep in the car when we go on long trips, or to carry with us to the ball games.

Thank you soooo much for sharing the pattern. I love the idea alot. Makes a great gift. I was looking at the pattern and I just want to know, how to do a 1/2 shell. I have never done that stitch before. It's probably easy.

Vonnie, can you tell be how big this is? Is it like a lapghan? I am thinking it would be cool to make Arden (age 2) one for trips. they drive from Pittsburgh to Lancaster for holidays, etc. I think it would be perfect!!

 

Now, what colors?

 

:hug,

Thank you So much for allowing us use of this pattern. I just think it is fabulous.

 

I already started mine last night (Vonnie was kind enough to send me this pattern privately :hug ) So that I could make one for a dear friend of mine that was diagnoised w/ Advanced Kidney Cancer and beginning treatments after her surgery at the end of the month.

 

thank you again Vonnie

Thank you for sharing this pattern! My parents live in MN and my mother keeps blankets in the car in the winter to use while waiting for the heater to kick in, this would be perfect! Now the question is, should it be in the Vikings colors or the Gophers? :blush
