(Beginning in this next row, you will be working around the blanket.)
(This round the directions vary depending on the yarn that you have chosen to work with. The initial instructions will be written for the super bulky baby yarn and then the adjustments for the medium worsted weight yarn will follow.)
Super bulky baby yarn
Ch 3, (dc, ch1, dc, ch1) in same st.
Side A: Working along left side of the quilt, dc, ch 1, working 16 dc evenly spaced (works best if you space them before and after each bobble along the side), dc in corner st. (Dc, ch 1, dc, ch1) in same corner st.
Side B: Working across the bottom of the quilt, dc, ch 1, working 14 dc evenly spaced, dc in corner st. Repeat Side A and Side B once again ending with a slip st in the second ch of beginning ch 3.
Changes for medium worsted weight yarn:
Ch 4, work the rest of the eyelet round just the same except use tc instead of dc. I found that the dc stitches were just barely not tall enough to accommodate the 7/8" ribbon. (The close up pictures for the next couple steps show dc because I didn't realize this till later. Just a clarification if you are referring to the pictures on the blog.) When joining, slip st in the third ch of beginning ch 4.
Ch 2, sc in next ch 1 space, ch 2, [*sc in next ch 1 sp, ch 1*, repeat from * to * across to corner, ch 2 over corner dc], repeat from [ to ] around. Join in first ch of beginning ch 2. Finish off. Weave in ends.
Cut off 2 ¾ yrds of ribbon and weave it through the eyelet row securing with a bow, and you're done!
