Hold the yarn in front of your work when slipping the stitches to create the little horizontal loop at each point.
The center of the blanket is honeycomb cables with this slipped double chain on either side and has double seed stitch with braided cabled edges
The pattern for the baby blanket is for sale in my etsy shop.

This was a super fun project and I can't wait to see and hold the baby! I guess I need to wait until she's ready to show herself to the world, but it sure is hard to wait.

Until then, keep your knitting needles clicking!
