Here's a baby blanket I made a year or more ago....  It was the first "big" project I ever did, as I recall.... Seemed to take for frickin ever.  I wanted it to look lacey with out it having big old holes in it. I really like the way it turned out!  My baby's "color" Will be green (and, please, no licenced cartoon characters, aunt thelma) weather it is a boy or a girl. I don't think this will be for my future baby, though... I think I'll have lots of fun making him/her nice things with organic cotton yarn... that'll be a blast..  Anyway, I don't have plans for this blanket right now, but it's nice to have it around, just in case someone has a baby!





Oh, and that's my puppy, Cadence! Smiley


Edited to insert pattern from later in the thread:
Ok, I re-figured out the stitch for the body of the blanket:

Row 1: ch126, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across.
Row 2: ch 1, Turn. (sc, ch3, 3dc) in 1st sc, *Skip 3 sc, (sc, ch3, 3dc) in next sc, Rep* across to last 4sc, skip next 3sc, sc in last sc
Row 3: Ch 3, turn, 3dc in 1st sc, (sc, ch3, 3 dc) in each chain space across. Ending with sc in last space.

Repeat row 3 till blanket is the size you want.

edge with rows of sc, one in a color, if you like.

The frilly edge was made by putting 3 or so tc in each of the sc's.

Wow - that's very nice. I am a big fan of baby items that don't look babyish.

Also, your puppy is precious. Methinks baby Cadence is thinking that he would like to roll around on that blanket!  Smiley

i decided to make this blanket for my friend but im having an issue with the sc around the whole thing. when going over the last row did you just sc in each stitch or did you do something special for that side of the square?
