With nothing on my needles after finishing the Itty Bitty and Easter coming up so soon I decided I needed a simple fun knit for the Easter Baskets this year.

A quick stop at Ben Franklin’s for the softest baby yarn they had (acrylic Baby Clouds, so soft!) and a browse through Ravelry led to this pattern which I adapted because I have no idea what that lady is doing for the backside!  I couldn’t figure that out, so I made it up all on my own.  Enjoy!

The first step is to knit a square, any size, any yarn, any color, any stitch!
