This is the star shaped baby blanket I just finished! It's for a friend of mine who is expecting twins. I am in the process of making another one, but with the colors reversed.

The pattern can be found here: http://www.angelfire.com/va3/heartfeltangels/littlestarafghan.html

A big THANK YOU!!! to lsn_designs and J. M. Phillips. They helped me make sense of this pattern!

It is easy once you understand the pattern.  I had a very hard time understanding the instructions for the first row.

Isn_designs explained it better in this thread than the pattern does: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22719.0

If you have any problems you can send me a PM and I will help you!

I too would *love* to make this blanket (seeing as how I"m obsessed with stars). But I've never ever ever followed a pattern before (not even for knitting which is my native "tongue") how hard is it for a beginner? Also, about how much yarn did this take and what kind did you use? how big is the blanket?

What a beautiful blanket.  I wish I knew somebody with a baby so I could try making it.

That is so pretty and cute!!! I want to make one. I love that you use multicolored yarn. I hope a friend decided to have a kid now.  Naw, I'll just make it for myself. Cheesy

That is sooo pretty. You did a GREAT job. I love the colors you went with. Sooo babish (in a good way)  Grin

I love you. And not, not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. I love you. Very, very simple, very truly. You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being.

  Hey, I have a baby, someone could make me one!  I mean her...
It is the same kind of star as Maggie's snowsuit on the simpsons. =)

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

dansk, that is incredible! How many rounds did you do?

I have a new niece on the way, and am making her a 'punk' layette set, all in hot pink with black trim. Have done a sweater and hat, and this is perfect for the blankie, esp. with this great shape.

Thanks for posting....it's given me a great idea *grin.
