Slipped Rib Blanket for baby or not.

I am giddy, learning to make PDFs has blown me away, here is a long time promised pattern.  This project is inspired by Stephen West Free pattern.....Slipped Rib Scarf  show here in two colors
Slipped Rib designed by Stephen West
  

The secret of the slipped rib, is to line up the slips and the knits...

Right side-row 1: Knit 1 slip 1 (With yarn in front)
Wrong side row 2: Knit All(in the round, flat knitting you Purl all!)


I was happily knitting a baby blanket for a friend when alas my daughter who will leave for college in less than 20 months now...cast an eye on it... and stated that she wanted it...I had 3 or 4 skeins of the lovely Malabrigo Rios wound and had knitted 2 of them....

Clearly this would not be big enough for a "end of dorm room bed" blankie for her.. so I was on a hunt... more lovely Rios in Arco Iris, (rainbow).  In Maine I found one, and more around the NY area as well..... at 11 I finally stopped... and called it a blanket..
