This custom baby blanket was designed for a sweet family who wanted to be surprised by their newborn's gender. Large stripes of standard 'baby colors' (green, blue, yellow and pink) are accented with a simple criss-cross diamond pattern.
My favorite yarn for baby blankets is Caron Simply Soft. This blanket was made using the colors White, Soft Pink, Sunshine, Sage and Soft Blue.
Caron Simply Soft yarn is incredibly gentle on skin, in addition to being easily machine-washable and machine-dryable. This blanket is easy to clean and will last many years with little wear.
