I had made this really awesome star shaped baby blanket for a friend a couple years ago, and when I found out that I was pregnant last year, I waned to make one for my baby. Unfortunately, I wen back to that pattern and it had been removed by the author! I looked around on Ravelry and ended up comparing a couple different free patterns to find a similar one. I found a good one, altered it a tiny bit, and got started. When I started way back in October, I didn't know the sex of the baby yet, so I settled on a basic rainbow+black palette. I ended up losing my hook partway through the project, so it took quite some time to complete. Plus, I am a super lazy crocheter. Sometimes, I'd pull it out to work on it, do two or three stitches, and zone out on Boardwalk Empire or Game of Thrones.






And here's a bonus shot of my kittie, Harvey, "helping" me. He was talking back to me after I caught him trying to steal my scissors.

Your little boy should love it. I hope it will be an heirloom in times to come.

Thank you, everybody, it's a great project that works up pretty quickly. I was sooooo tempted to just keep going, adding rows until it was a blanket big enough for mommy, lol. I DO love my rainbows! I figured adding the black would "man" it up a bit, even though all little kids love rainbows (or, at least, they did when I was one!).

Your Star-ghan is fabulous.  Love the use of black with the rainbow.  And absolutely adore the kitty pic! Grin
