Basil is available in the Kelbourne Woolens Baby Collection and also as an individual PDF download.
Basil begins from the center out on double pointed needles. You will move to the circular when the circumference is too large to fit comfortably on the double pointed needles. Increases are worked every other round. Only ¼ of the blanket is charted and you will work the charts 4 times across to complete the round.
