A few years ago, I started a tradition of crocheting baby blankets for the new babies in the family, starting with my youngest sister...(wow that was 12 years ago). When I found out Rochelle was pregnant a couple years ago, I decided to make this blanket for her baby-to-be. I made this blanket from a pattern that was included with the yarn I bought, for it. I don't remember the brand of yarn it was...it was a big 1 pound skein of baby yarn, and I got it at JoAnn Fabrics, and I am pretty sure it is still sold there if you are interested in making it.
This is my precious nephew as a newborn, wrapped in the blanket I made for him:
Here is the second blanket I did for my second nephew last April - I liked the way this one turned out a little better - it was bigger, and I think the stitches look better.
Here are some other crocheting projects I want to try:
Baby Nest and beanie
Frog baby hat (this could be cute - the eyes could be bear ears or monkey ears)
Do you know of any other good "crochet for baby" patterns that would make good gifts? I would love it if you shared your ideas and links!
