I followed this pattern which is the same one I used to make a blanket for my nephew a little over a year ago. I really do enjoy this pattern, there is something incredibly soothing about the repeating stitches back and forth across the rows.
One thing I did change a bit from the original pattern was the edging. I found a coordinating solid pink in my yarn stash and then did one row of single crochet in white, pink, and then white around the blanket. I finished off with a picot edge in solid pink. I am very happy with how the edging turned out. The solid colors really frame the blanket and the picot edging makes it look a little more fancy.
She is the sweetest and most adorable little girl.
