Ruthie's Blanket, free pattern

Today is the third anniversary of the loss of my niece's infant daughter, Ruthie. To honor and remember her, I share again these two posts, Remembering Ruthie and Ruthie's Blanket. The pattern for the blanket is available as a free pdf download, but if you choose to download the pattern, please consider making a donation to Empty Arms, an organization that helps families through this darkest of times, in Ruthie's name.

I'm happy to report that the blanket has found a new role and new life, snuggling Ruthie's sister Olive, who recently celebrated her first birthday.
