I knitted a little pink crib blanket for her.
|This is the true color of the pink.|
The pattern is from 60 Quick Baby Blankets: Cute & Cuddly Knits in 220 Superwash® and 128 Superwash® from Cascade Yarns (60 Quick Knits Collection) Page 92.
The original pattern is called "Blue Diamonds", but since I was making it for a baby girl, I call it "Pink Diamonds".
I used Bernat's Softee Baby yarn in Baby Pink and US size 7 needles. The pattern was pretty straight forward and easy. The only thing that I would do differently with the pattern is; I would 3 more stitches on each end for the knitted border. After I finished knitting the blanket, the the pattern said to pick up and knit some hundred stitches on each side then knit 3 rows. What a pain. I liked this pattern a lot and I think it's perfect for sparing little fingers and toes from getting caught in it.
I had enough yarn left over to knit a matching baby cap.
