I actually started to make a blanket with a different pattern, but got 1/4 of the way through and wasn't happy with it, so I went back to a pattern I know makes lovely blankets: the Tiramisu!    It makes a nice, thick blanket which I'm told is a good play surface for little ones because it's so cushy.   

Link to the fabulous free pattern: http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/TiramisuBlanket.pdf

Used Elann's superwash bamboo yarn which wasn't terribly soft as I was working with it, but after a soak/wash it became much softer. 

Photos!

That's such a nice blanket and I love the ribbon. The majority of crochet blankets are very decorative and have the holes in them and don't keep me warm enough. I'll have to try this one since I'm moving to manitoba and can't handle ontario's -20C weather, nevermind manitoba's -40 or colder. Thanks for showing and linking this Smiley

Wow, it's really amazing. If I had a baby, I'd definitely make one too! (and if I could crochet... eww... ._.)

How long did it take?

Thanks guys!   

This was one of those projects that I worked on absentmindedly for a while.... started in february, I think and worked it in spurts.  Didn't take too long.   The pattern is really easy once you get it going, so it's a good thing to work on while watching movies.

Ilianora - this would make a fantastic warm blanket - it's nice and thick.  Eats yarn like a mofo though, so you'll need lots!

That is so pretty! I think I'll try to make two of these for my bunk bed. Cheesy
About how many skeins did you use? Will the finished blanket be big enough for a twin sized bed or will I have to improvise? *sorry for all the questions. ^^;*

Thanks!    This one is baby-blanket sized.... perhaps 2.5ft by 4ft?   It took 6skeins (~650 yards).  You'll have to improvise a bit - just start with a longer starting chain (I think it just needs to be an even number of stitches for the pattern to work out).  Hope that helps!

This is the blanket that I should have made instead of the silly Lion Brand one that is oddly small. The color is really pretty! I hope whoever the blanket is for enjoys it! It looks lovely.
