I finished the Classic Baby Blanket Tuesday evening.
The border really adds to the blanket and makes it look "finished".
This blanket was super easy to make. Honestly.
Here's a quick photo of the blanket in progress. I added more rows to it before I decided it was big enough though. I did work the 53 rows of the body though. No more. I was afraid it would end up as a square blanket but it didn't. It's the perfect crib size in my opinion.
I used Caron's Simply Soft yarn in Soft Pink and a size H crochet hook. It took about 2 1/2 skeins of the yarn. Actually a little less than 2 1/2 skeins. The crochet pattern is called Classic Baby Blanket and you can find it by clicking on this link http://onelittlerayndrop.blogspot.com/2011/04/classic-baby-blanket.html.
This blanket is a gift for the high school principal who's expecting the arrival of her baby girl soon.
