I'm usually more of a knitter, but I couldn't pass this blanket up. I decided to make it less of an heirloom blanket and more of a blanket that will wipe up spit up and get thrown down on the floor for play time so I used Peaches and Creme yarn (far superior to the Sugar and Cream IMO.) And I used a 6.0mm hook.
The pattern is from the wonderful book Craftivity. Love it!
