OK -- here are two I've made as part of a set that I've been doing as new baby gifts (along with the "Baby It's Cold Outside" sweater and a cap)

I love working these up with the Homespun "Painterly" colors because of all the beautiful, subtle color changes.

I made a larger -small throw blanket size- version of this blanket out of scrap yarn, and just haven't weaved the ends in yet.. It isn't very soft, but a good washing might help.
I'll def try and post some pictures of soon (even if I wasn't technically involved in this crochet-a-long Grin)

I'm still working, although I am sidetracked by pesty ol' xmas gifts right now.  I have to get some more yarn to continue, but once I do it should be finished soon! I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finished!!! no picture because it was a day late for the new girl in our lives ( after three boys they  are sooooo shocked)  30 rounds in DK wool .  a variegated lime green/yellow/white and white .  the colours picked by my son for his cousin to be.  my son loves wool shops, a great shopping conpanion for yarn.

Hope it's not too late.  Here is mine, however it's still not finished.  I can't figure out how big it should be for a one year old.  That picture was taken on my queen size bed.  The blanket is 34 1/2" from tip top to the bottom and 42" across from tip to tip. 



I was trying to figure out why it doesn't lay flat and my conclusion is that when i began this blanket, I was crocheting tight stitches and as I was plodding along, my stitches were getting way loose.  So much for trying to get this thing done as fast as possible.

I think some other people have had the same problem.  I'm not sure if adding stitches would help or not.  Maybe someone else who's been there and done that knows.

no, mine had the same problem... a bit too much rippling. wonder how to convert this from a star into a square.  it'd be fun to fill in the sides with another color, don't you think?

MopTop, it would totallybe fun to fill in the sides and more practical as an afghan.  I've been thinking about that, however, being new to crochet, I'm stumped.  If anyone can figure it out, please let me know.

I finally got it finished and then I had a lot of trouble trying to post the picture!
Eventually, I managed to post this tiny little image, but you get the idea!



OK, maybe it's not that little.  Probably I just don't know what I'm doing.  
Still, I'm really pleased with the blanket.  Cheesy
