I have a pattern, but it is crochet. It has bobbles that are in the shape of an angel with wings. My mother bought one for my daughter at a craft sale at churck and I asked her to ask the maker for the pattern. I don't know how to crochet well, but I keep it in my pattern stash anyway.

This blanket is crochet, but I think it's absolutely gorgeous... I hope to start it soon for my little one who was born on June 1, but is still in the NICU since she was 12 weeks early.

I'm in the middle of knitting a Log Cabin style baby blanket and I love it. The effect is nice and stimulating to look at and it's really easy and mindless knitting--just garter stitch, cast off, quarter turn, pick up stitches, repeat ad nauseum.

You can use any number of colors but my scheme includes the five most pleasing (to my eye) colors of Bernat Baby Softee that my local Wal*Mart had in stock: white, mint green, pastel pink, baby yellow, and baby blue. And my stripes start with a white square in the middle, then green, pink, blue and finally yellow.

I'm repeating the same order so color pattern spirals and the color stripes stack on top of each other in the same order. I'll finish with a white border. It's fun!

My friend just told me that she is having a baby and I was hoping to make her this one, but she requested something else.

Hi ADAllen,

Just saw your thread & had to reply...I made this blanket as a gift & for a customer. It is a terrific pattern & looks wonderful in a soft multi colored yarn. I think you will be happy with it..I'm sure the new Mom will be very appreciative she has such a thoughtful friend.

Let us know what yarn decide to use.

I made this recently - http://www.she.dragonflylily.com/aayla_knit_blanket.htm as a graduation gift. I made the toddler size. The yarn was nice to work with, it's really soft and (this is the most important!) machine washable!

I just made this one for my son... I think it's the one that I would make....

I didn't use the yarn they have, I used another bulky weight yarn and it turned out so cute....

Personally I think these two are very pretty.

My sister just had a baby and I have been seriously thinking about doing the first one for her since I finished the baby sweater, hat, and booties.

I am sure whatever you choose will be beautiful.
