This baby blanket is so vintage and yet modern looking at the same time. The cream colored yarn creates a feeling of an heirloom piece that has been passed down through generations. It is a pretty simple repeating pattern that can easily be followed by an advanced beginner. Now quick, somebody get me a baby so I can make this.

The Natural Baby Blanket is one to definitely try. I will get one of these made for a special friend that is having a baby in August. I think this could either be for a boy or a girl and it looks adorable. Great project to get started on in the next couple of months. It says it only requires one skein of yarn, so that is a real good reason to make this.

I loved this afghan pattern. Much easier than it looks. Just enough to make it interesting. I made it in pink for a friend's baby shower.

This says to do in multiples of (1811) but 84 stitches is a multiple of (1711) so I am a little confused.

This is beautiful and elegant looking. I can't wait to try it!
