This is my first project besides the scarf I did and my practice piece I'm playing with/learning on.

This is a baby blanket I made for my niece or nephew due next week! It took about 2 weeks and was super simple. The pattern does have an error though, if you want to do it yourself. I didn't realize it until I was done with the next row and really didn't want to go back and take out 2 rows just to fix it. Row 3 is the same as 1 and Row 4 is the same as 2. If you look at the pattern and have any experience and can visualize it, it makes perfect sense! Here's a link to the pattern:

I used Red Heart Super Saver in Monet. It's a pretty color and it's gender neutral. I used my 9 circular needles. I didn't want to buy new ones and the pattern called for 11 and the yarn 8, so I just used the one in between. I still don't know what I'm doing and those numbers get me all confused. I love it though! The only thing I would've done different is realize the error before I started it! I only did 9 patterns instead of 11 called for (I think it may have meant to say 10).

Yeah if you read the pattern it makes it sound like you do row one then row 2,3 and 4 are all the same :?? Whatever. That is a beeeyoootiful blanket. I am impressed. Now I have to make one!

Love the pattern and the colors! The border looks especially nice! Where did u get the pattern for the border? I'm working on a baby afghan myself but would like to add a border for a nicer edging. :XX:
