My sister just had a new baby and for her new baby girl, I made this beautiful blanket, hat, booties, and sweater set - I really love how it turned out and the soft yarn was wonderful! I really only made one change to the pattern. The blanket had fringe on the top and bottom, but I didn't like the raw edge look of the sides - so I added a row of single crochet along the two sides and I really liked the way it looked with that edge MUCH better! I wish that I had made the had a looser stitch, because it ended up being a bit small for her. :(
I got the pattern from a book called "Dressing Up Baby" and I can't wait to try another pattern from the book!
