I’ve been working on a baby blanket for a friend who is expecting a little boy. This blanket will be blue and beige, and I love the simplicity of the design. I don’t use a pattern, I just made it up, which is true of most of the things I crochet, knit, or sew. Really, it’s just one big granny square, and I’ll change colors a few times to make stripes.
Last summer, I made this blanket in shades of blue and green for my friend Rachel’s little boy. I was looking in my yarn basket today and thinking I’d love to make one in shades of pink and purple. I hope somebody has a girl soon!
