Baby Blanket for Jace
I love the way this turned out, but the pattern wasnít very well written. Still, it is a lovely blanket. For my chiropractorís new baby.
First time Iíve used the Nashua Creative Focus, and I really like it. Itís very soft. A bit splitty on the crochet bind-off, but very nice for the money. Iíll definitely use it again. Got it from Webs for half-price!


Pattern: Sleeping Beauty Baby Blanket
Yarn: Nashua Creative Focus Superwash in Pale Green

What a beautiful blanket! Seems like I'm always needing a baby blanket for a gift these days and love to have new patterns.

What issues did you find with the way the pattern was written? Would like to hear your suggestions, changes, etc.
