This was the first blanket I had ever knitted and let's just say...blankets take patience. I spent a long time searching for the perfect pattern. Something light-weight, cause Southern Cali is pretty warm most of the year, and something "current". I decided to go with this pattern .
I used Caron Simply Soft because it is washable and nice and scrunchy! If you are looking for a good yarn for baby clothes, I recommend this one.
