Thank you so much for that pattern link! I think it will help a lot.
As you read in my how-to post, I want to do a square blanket w/rounded corners, with an eyelet border that I will weave 1/2" wide ribbon thru, and monogram the baby's initials and date of birth in the corners.
The only way I can do the monograms is to knit a square on the diagonal. (inc 1 st on each side until the square is as wide as I want, then dec 1 st on each side) I was not able to figure out how to do the rounded corners this way. I either need to start with the rounded edge on my inc side and the square edge side on my dec side - this way the monograms will be knit right side up. If I knit the square edge on the inc side and did the rounded edge on the dec side the monograms would have to be knit upside down, because I want them on the rounded edge side.
I would have to knit 4 of these pieces and sew them together to form 1 finished piece.
I will have to do some more research and knit a few swatches to see if this can even work.
