This pattern is so easy and seems to grow so quickly, until the end, that is...those last few rows are the killer! By the end of this one, I had to go up to a 150cm-long circular needle in order to keep the stitches in order. One round = 20 minutes.
Just like the last time, I took the edging pattern from a Nicky Epstein book: Knitting Beyond the Edge. The pattern as written in the book would work best with a lighter yarn and didn't look good at all with this cotton, so I made the 'waves' a little smaller than the pattern instructed.
When I started making this, I had no idea to whom I would give it, but in the end it found a good home with a friend's brother's little girl. I've seen pictures of the little one lying on it and apprently it is being put to good use, which pleases me to no end!
