Another baby on the way means another blanket to crochet! (And no, not another baby on the way for me.... for a friend!)
I enjoy crocheting when it's sort of mindless. No stitch counting, no real pattern to follow. This blanket is pretty simple once you get the V-stitch going. I did not put an edge on this blanket because I used a thin baby yarn.
I also chose a variegated yarn because I wanted it to be simple AND pretty!
See the craft directions page for instructions.
