An Heirloom for Simon

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My daughter and son-in-law decided to wait until birth to see if it was a boy or girl. I crocheted this blanket suitable for either gender. The pattern is a traditional pineapple. Once "he" arrived, Simon, rode home from the hospital in it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure all your yarn comes from the same run so there are no variations in color. Take time to do a sample to check your gauge.

Many thanks Ladymax! I'm following your example and plan to make baby hats for NICUs while recovering from upcoming surgery. If I can't quilt, I'll crochet!! :D
