Baby Blanket

I am making this blanket for my cousin's newborn (her first). I am using a Waves pattern, I believe. I will post a link to the pattern when I find it. I am using Caron Simply Soft in off white and soft green. It's off a stitch... not sure how that happened, but by the time I noticed it I was so far along that I decided to keep going that way. I wanted it to be a light blanket, so the stitches are loose.

What do you think is a nice size for a baby blanket? This one is approx. 36" wide... that's with horizontal stripes. I could also turn it so the stripes are vertical, but I'm not sure how that would look. The bottom and top (with hor. stripes) are flat and edges are scalloped. I don't know how it would look with a scalloped top/bottom and straight sides. Hm. What do you think?

I found the pattern! Woot! Wavy Blanket Pattern
