This I made for one of my friends who is having a baby in a few months. She already has said she had recieved a few either knit or crochet handmade blankets that were baby colors. I didn't really feel like making her another pastel blanket so i thought i would mix it up a little bit. The Yarn is 100% cotton i got it from Michaels... I made a little hat to match that i knit and then made a crochet flower for it..... it was really easy its just a basic shell pattern for the blanket and then the hat pattern from my free pattern site.
