recently someone posted pictures and a link to the pattern for this pinwheel baby blanket...so i got started and finished just in time for my little girl to snuggle up in it (she is 2 weeks old)! it was very easy, and looks more complicated so i get a lot of compliments. i used a cotton variegated yarn (gender neutral colors) and made a crochet border...she loves it.
here's most of it:

here's how cuddly it (she) is:

here's a close-up of (her) the border...

Beautiful! I love the colors. Cute baby too Smiley As far as skill level goes, how hard was it? I have a baby shower coming up.

It (she) is absolutely beautiful!  You don't happen to still have the link for the directions do you?  Was it knit or crochet?
She's beautiful, congrats Smiley
oops, guess that would be knit since we're in the knitting forum...duh

What a beautiful baby!  and blanket!  I had seen that pattern a while ago but I had only seen pics of it in pastels, which didn't really appeal to me that much.    Yours looks so amazing!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I've had that blanket bookmarked for a while, but still haven't started.  I agree with the pastel comment.  Seeing yours makes me MUCH more excited to dive in.
