Wowza! Wowza! Wowza! This Star Crossing Crochet Blanket pattern in awesome! It's not exactly my color scheme...a little too much white for my taste. I think I'll recreate it in an Americana folk look with gold stars and red, white and blue. I'll need to work it out. Maybe gold stars and blue background around them. Then figuring out the rest of it with red and white. It would be the perfect gift for VA hospital patients or friends who've served in the military.

This is so cute and the designer didn't lie, it's very easy to make. I am thinking of doing it in dark blue with the white stars for my 7 year old grand son. He got a telescope for Christmas and has been space minded ever since. Thanks for sharing this one.
