Huck Baby Blanket Draft

I’ve used this weaving draft for baby blankets and it makes nice, thermal-type blankets. It didn’t work well with Peaches & Cream yarn I think because my sett was too wide at 6 epi. I often use two colors or one color plus white, alternating them in the blocks because that creates nice effects in the basket weave blocks. The huck is a 3-thread huck.
