Stay-put Baby Blanket-Finished

Another baby project is finished! I am really happy with this one :-)

I left off with 26 rows on my last post about this... I ended up stopping the cable pattern at 106 rows, which was about 14 1/2 inches long. I refered back to the Nocte for decreasing. I had to make some alterations due to the number I'd cast on along with other little things that I wanted to look differently.
Rows 107-111 K1, P1 around.
R112 K7, K2tog, and repeat
R113 K2tog, K38, and repeat
R114 K6, K2tog, ending with K6
R115 Knit
R116 K5, K2tog, ending with K6
R117 Knit
R118 K4, K2tog
R119 Knit
R120 K3, K2tog
R121 Knit
R122 K2, K2tog
R123 Knit
R124 K1, K2tog
I decided I wanted more of a seam look so I ended here and did a 3 needle bind out after turning the piece inside out. One could continue with R125 Knit and R126 K2tog all around and then weave a long tail through the remaining stitches, pull tight, knot and weave the end in.
I can't wait to find out how well it really fits a baby! Got a couple more months for that... but in a few weeks, I'll find out if my knitted items will be well received by the mom-to-be :-)
