I first did this set almost 40 years ago. I made so many of these as gifts for family and friends. I had kept my pattern, but alas, when we moved I had misplaced it. I was so happy to be able to find it online. I just finished up one set as a shower gift and now plan to make more up just to have on hand. Beautiful! I plan to purchase more patterns from the older years. Leisure Arts patterns are fantastic.

I also made this set 30 years ago. I'm so happy to find the pattern again as I lost my copy.

I was intrigued by the different shape of the design on this blanket. Can't wait to start it.

I made this for my baby daughter, now 26. What memories it brings back! When I saw the picture I couldn't believe it! Fun to do, worth the work!

Purchased this pattern in late 80's and made the baby afghan for my nephew. I loved how well it crocheted up and the colors used set it apart from other patterns. I've lost the original booklet and have re-purchased to crochet another for the next generation of babies coming along!

I made this for my sister's first child 30 years ago, and just made the same blanket for his first child. Timeless.

I made this 30 years ago for my youngest daughter and looked all over for this pattern for my grandchildren. I even wrote to Leisure Arts asking about it.

I spotted this pattern online, but not as a baby blanket. It was done up as a queen size afghan, and the colors that were used caught my eye - I knew I had to hunt it down and get it for me. It was shown on You Tube, from there to Etsy, and when I emailed the person that made it, she led me to Leisure Arts. Now it's mine..

Many years ago I found this pattern, fell in love with it, and after making it, I put it in my hope chest, planning to give to one of my nieces or nephews (who were children at the time) when they had a child. In 2006, I sent it to my niece/goddaughter when she gave birth to her first child...that little girl still loves her 'rainbow afghan'. I also made a set for my dear friend living in Texas when she had her first son...who is now expecting his own son with his wife. My girlfriends, evfen to this day, refer to this pattern as "THE" baby afghan...we all liked the pattern so much
