This one is called the blanket stitch and I found the pattern with a nice tutorial here at Mama in a stitch. It is a multiple of 3 pattern - I chained 138 to start. It should be a nice lap size for her.
That prompted Aidan to pull out the craft kit he ordered from Craftsy (now Bluprint). One is a knitted pillowcase with sheep. The other is a hat pattern with a crochet pattern. I told him I'd start on it Saturday.
