I have been waiting for a couple weeks now and I'm eager to get started on my next big project. I am glad that I decided to open it AFTER moving day - I would definitely get sidetracked by this knit blanket and not be much help with the move.
It is called OpArt and the pattern is available for FREE :) you just have to put in the time knitting it and this blanket is available to you through Knitty. The original pattern calls for just two colours, but I saw this version of the blanket on Ravelry by gudnylara and I knew it would be PERFECT for Jack.
This is a little blurb about the design from Knitty's webpage about the OpArt:
"This pattern also appeals to the developmental process of infant vision. Babies are born color blind, and with very poor vision (about 20/400 for a normal infant at birth. They are naturally attracted to high contrast, black and white images, since these are more distinct to them. From a distance of a foot or so, a newborn will be able to distinguish only the larger stripes on the edge of the blanket, with the thinner ones fading away into a solid gray, as the baby matures, the thinner stripes will become distinct. To an adult, however, it’s a fun, funky pattern with an optical illusion of a square tunnel spiraling away."
