Hi. I am in the middle of a baby boom among my family and friends. This is a blanket I finished knitting a while ago for my oldest friend. We've been friends since we were three. For the past month or so I've had the hardest time frogging and tinking various borders for it. I just couldn't find the right one so I ended up crocheting a simple border. I am really happy with the whole thing! It looks much more square in real life than the picture. I would take another picture but I've already wrapped it up for the baby shower this weekend.

My pattern: Multidirectional Diagonal knit dishcloth (http://lotzastitches.blogspot.com/2007/05/multidirectional-diagonal-dishcloth.html)
Yarn used: Bernat Camouflage in Go Girl and Bernat baby coordinates in baby pink.

Beautiful job! You were so smart to think of enlarging that dishcloth pattern, which I may just have to make!

That is absolutely beautiful! I only made a multidirectonal scarf --I would have never thought to make a blanket. And the yarn choice is wonderful. I will definitely be using your idea as a future baby gift.

Oh, I love the way you used that yarn! I've seen I Love This Yarn in camoflauge. Now, you've given me another fun way to use it!

Nice job! :thumbsup:

P.S. What a wonderful gift to give to a dear friend!

Love this idea!
And it's nice that you can just keep going to the size you need!
I made this cloth a long while ago, and now must try it in blanket size!
Hey,
maybe we can start a blankie thread where some of us work on this type of
blanket for charity?
