Father Seung Lee saved the data of his baby’s sleep schedule for the first year. Then, he created a reliable pattern for knitting. You can see the frenetic lines at the top of the blanket as the baby’s unpredictable sleep schedule right after birth. It shows how the child grew into a more reliable schedule as the lines reach more columnar patterns.

As Lee neared completion of the blanket, he shared, “All the disparate pieces felt really fragile but as I seamed it together, wove in loose ends, and removed stitch markers, it felt more and more sturdy. Something that I’d been handling like a delicate bird egg started to just feel like a blanket.”
