So a friend of mine at work, finally got the good news that she's pregnant with a baby girl! This is great news for her, because she had lost 2 already, and we're all keeping our fingers crossed that this one makes it home safe and healthy. As a show of my hope and belief in her, I committed to making her the most beautiful, hand-cramping, carpal tunnel inducing blanket pattern I had in my collection. It took me two weeks of non-stop crocheting to get it done.. and I must say, I'm really proud of it. (So much so, I've considered many times keeping it for myself ^_^) I used Bernat Baby Coordinates Pink, Baby Pink, and White, the blanket was composed of one main piece worked in  (dc, sc, dc, sc....) alternating colors, and then 3, yes THREE ruffles. A bottom, top and inner, and finished with a simple pink ribbon. I am NEVER crocheting something this labor intensive again, I now know why people complain so much about Picots...I'm already threatening my vagina to think of only boys..boys dont like ruffles.

I bought this lovely book at Half Priced Books for $0.25:




Ribbon & Inner Ruffle Close Up:


Top Ruffle Close up:


Bottom Ruffle Close up:
I ran out of the dark pink, and then the light pink...and the Picots are in white..lol.


Size comparison:
The book is approx. 12 x 9 inches.

The blanket is beautiful. You are a brave, brave soul to make it. I personally would have given up and frogged it after a couple rows. Then again...I started crocheting so I would learn to be more patient. Thus far, there's been little progress in that respect... Grin
Best wishes for your friend's health and the health of her baby girl!
