Crochet Lacy Blooms Baby Blanket

A couple weeks ago, my mother asked if I had any pink crochet baby blankets already made. Her friend/former coworker is pregnant with her first child, and she wanted to give her a crochet baby blanket as a baby shower gift. I didn't have one already made, so I whipped one up really quick! I have so many crochet pattern books, so I looked through one of my favorites and found a pattern for a lovely baby blanket that would be perfect for a summer baby.

To create this blanket, I followed a pattern in the crochet book A Year of Baby Afghans Book 5. The blanket in the book has purple and yellow flowers, but I decided to crochet pink and purple flowers instead.

Sometimes I used my carrot crochet hook while making this blanket. 

For this blanket, I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in White, Soft Pink, and Orchid.

I love the edges of this blanket!

The pattern worked up quick, especially once I memorized it, which didn't take long.

When I finished the blanket, I folded it neatly and tied a ribbon around it. I added my card and care instructions. My mother informed me that the recipient LOVED it! Yay!  I definitely plan on making another blanket like this soon. I think next time, I'll make pink and yellow flowers.
