I made one for my nephew who is as yet unborn.... my sis-in-law is due for a c-section on aug 9 (which is his fathers birthday too). She typically doesn't use "normal" colors, like her daughter was desaturated greens and pinks with brown. Soooo here's what I did for him...

I used Charisma yarn that was at Michaels, which is like mega super soft and squishy and i LOVE IT and highly recommend it. It crocheted up really damn fast!


live to love, love to live.

The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return

Now I REALLY want one of these for my son.   Too bad I cant crochet, I'd end up a tangled mess!

@DragonFyre: that looks awesome! I love those colours. I only did a few with solids, but I'll have to give variegated yarn a try as well when I see yours!

@leighi: you don't know until you try  Wink Seriously, the beginning is a bit weird (but there are tutorials for that I believe) and after that it's all right.

The only thing I hate about this blanket is that the further you get the longer it takes to finish a round. I like fast results!

Here is my Star baby blanket!  My friend asked me to make one for her daughter's doll and I did this last night. Used Red Heart super saver yarn and 5.00 hook. I know it should be bigger (only did 11 rows) but didn't have a enough yarn to go another row.  I just finished off with single crochet back loop only to give it a finished look.

I have started yet another starghan and I also taught my daughter how to make one yesterday, instead of showing her how or just giving her the pattern to read I told her step by step how to do it and it worked. She just needs to get her stitches a little tighter

GOOD FOR YOU!!! I can't wait to teach my granddaughter, I had 3 boys and crafting was not a priority, so the granddaughters are going to learn everything! I have one who was due to arrive yesterday but she has decided to be late and make a grand entance on her time. Smiley. the 2 year old already tries, she plays with the hook and yarn when I crochet she has her own!

reviving the thread to let people know that hopefully i'll have a finished star baby-ghan soon
and really hoping it'll be soon enough that i can make another before their due dates
(my SIL and CIL are due about a day apart)

Finally posting pictures of my star baby blanket.  I used sport weight yarn and since I didn't know if it was going to be a girl or boy I used pink, blue and white.
