A very good friend of mine and his girlfriend are having their first baby so I wanted to make something special for them. It took me a while but I'm finally done! :cheering:

The pattern can be found here. (http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babyafbh.htm) I used Bernat Softee Baby in Lemon. The color is a little brighter than it looks here.

I loved making this. The pattern is easy and I was able to memorize it after the first pattern repeat.

Thanks so much for telling me what pattern you used. I was wondering if you used size 9 needles like the pattern called for or did you use a different size? Thanks again.

Thanks so much for the kind words everyone.

Kelly, I actually used size 6 needles since I used a lighter weight yarn. I just cast on more stitches than called for and knit until it was the length I wanted.

Very nice. I really like it. I'm making a baby blanket in about that color.

What a beautiful blanket, you did a great job!

I started a blanket thread in the pattern forum, still deciding what to make for a shower mid-August. This might be perfect, thanks!

What pattern did you use and what yarn. I think it is sooo pretty. I would like to do one just to put back for when I need it.

Alyce... the pattern and yarn that she used has already been mentioned in this forum. Just read some more in the forum. It should be about page 2. I hope this helps.

Lovely pattern stitch. That will be perfect whether it's a girl or boy and will be great for passing on to the next baby or generation of babies. You have created an heirloom!

I wish I had been able to deliver this gift myself. I mailed it a couple weeks ago and they got it yesterday. Just in time, the baby is due any day now. I knew my friend would love the blanket but I was not expecting the reaction I got. I was so touched by the email I received from him that I actually cried. It's so nice to make something for someone that really appreciates it.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I am really proud of this piece.
