Four Squares Blanket

This pattern is from Debbie Stoller's Stitch n' Bitch. I have made this blanket once before for a friend of mine and I think it's such a great pattern. It's modern but classic looking at the same time. And quite big! I'm thinking this will probably be the blanket we bring Bumble home in. 

Here you can see where the four corners "meet" and are made of 2 different stitch methods. It's just garter and stockinette, so any newbie knitter can pick this up pretty quickly!

The border is in moss stitch, which is time consuming but I think absolutely beautiful. It's very textured looking and feels wonderful. I would do more projects in moss stitch if it didn't take so long!
