Holy cow, such a pretty blanket and I can't believe how easy it seems to hook. More directions than I was expecting, but really so many steps repeat and once you get going, you can just go!

The color choices for this are awesome. I'd like to try it in shades of blue or green, too. Looks like I'll be working for a while...

This gorgeous little baby just makes me want to crochet this baby blanket RIGHT NOW, lol! It is also such a lovely design and would be really easy to change the colors for different little ones. Fortunately there are several new babies in my life right now so I do have the perfect excuses. The colors are quite wonderful too and this blanket is going to be lovely and toasty warm for the coming winter here in the Southern Hemisphere.

What a color combination, bright for the baby will develop eye strength and focus. I will pin this project.
