The Serengeti Baby Blanket »
InstructionsThis is a combined knit/crochet project, so some knowledge of both crafts is necessary.
Also, using yarn that is blockable would be the best choice - cotton is machine wash/dry, and can be blocked if removed from the dryer while still slighly damp. Washable wool would also work.
If car-seat size is not big enough, use worsted wt yarn with larger needles/hook.

What was your inspiration?
Looking at beautiful photos of Africa gave me the inspiration for the colors - plus the fact that I lived in Nigeria for a year.
What are you most proud of?
I was trying to come out with a baby blanket that was neither too boyish, nor too girlish - something that would work for any baby, and wasn't pastel.
