knit pattern for 'abc thru z' blanket

hello ..

i just became a new grandmother. mmm. i remembered my favorite alphabet blanket from this site but can no longer find it :-(

it was not debbie bliss or anything although i guess it looked a bit like it. maybe some of the stitches for each letter was made from a knit popcorn or bobble stitch .. i cant really remember.

does anyone have this wonderful pattern which was highlighted on this forum some years ago?

thank you very much

Here's a link to the crochet pattern. It has come up on this forum a few times with people interested in it. I remember someone called Wendy the Pooh posted her picture of it. I wonder if she's still here. I made a note that she did it with Sirdar Snuggly and a D hook. She suggested using a G hook with worsted.

I've thought about making it but think it might get boring after a while. I do like the alphabet theme and I might make it since I'll be a grandma soon too.

I think it looks cute. Something I must try. It seems to need a border, which I think is done in the photograph. I think I might play around with hearts in the blank squares.

That would be adorable with hearts in the corners, Sheila. Does the picture look like it has a popcorn stitch for the border? It does need something to give it a finished look.

Here's another link to an improved graph in case anyone wants it.
