I first made this blanket 35 years ago. The woman I made it for was expecting her first baby and loved it. I am so glad you put it back. I lost mine when I moved years ago. I have been looking for it. Thank you.

I made one of these in the mid-80s. I have had requests for THIS afghan ever since. Mostly for Brights.. did one in Red and White only for an xmas baby. Friends ask for the pattern, but until I saw this I had thought I was out of print. Going to my LYS to let them know it IS available WOW.. it is fun, easy and addictive with minimal finish construction.

I bought this pattern when I was pregnant with my son in 1987 because I loved the size and the pattern. It is in many photo's of him as a newborn and infant including the cherished generation pictures with those no longer with us. I loaned the blanket to my sister who used it with both her children. She gave it to my brother when his son was born. My brother returned it to me after his son outgrew it and I put it away in my cedar chest.
Little did I know when I was happily crocheting a blanket for my expected son in 1987 it would still be around for his son and my first grandson to be born in November 2013.
Even though I still have this pattern and have made this blanket and given it as a gift many, many times I love the idea of using what has become a family heirloom.

I made this blanket when my daughter was born 29 1/2 years ago. Love Love Love It. She still has it with her.

was great to get the digital version of this favourite. I've made many baby gifts of this blanket. I made the whole set for my oldest son now 27, to come home from the hospital. The blanket is quick to crochet and looks nice in other colours as well.

So glad to see this pattern! My uncle’s mother crocheted this blanket for my firstborn, nearly 14 years ago. It was the last thing she ever made and our favorite blanket. I’ve been crocheting for nearly 20 years and have been wanting to make it for friends, and for her great-grandchildren who were born in the last year or two (I’m too selfish to pass on the actual blanket). Just bought it. YAY!! Can't wait for my yarn to arrive.
