Carousel Square.

I recently have been working on a 6×6 square for an upcoming mystery lapghan CAL(stay tuned for details) and I had a happy accident occur. I ended up with a goofy and fun square that resembles a carousel top!(or a boob according to my three year old).  So I ended up with this pattern for you!

image

Yes, I realize it looks like Madonnas bra. How much more perfect is a boobie blanket for a baby tough!?!?! It can be totally comforting am I right!?!? That’s not what I went for in design but my three year old couldn’t help himself when he saw them completed. “BOOBIES” he yelled.
