|Photo: Crocheted Summer Baby Blanket|
I am crocheting a light, lacey crib blanket this summer. I have been taking my time doing a little here and there, and I can see this becoming a regular thing because I find it so relaxing.
I am almost done with my first ball of LION BRAND Babysoft yarn in Pink Lemon, and I am about half way done with my project so I will probably end up using one or two more balls of yarn to create a 27" x 38" crib blanket with decorative edging.
For you crocheters or soon-to-be crocheters who like this pattern just look up the "Snapdragon Snitch" pattern from "63 Easy-to-crochet Pattern Stitches" by Leisure Arts (#3916), ISBN 1-60140-209-0. It is one of my favorite crochet pattern books, and it only cost about $5. Not only are the patterns beautiful, but the author also does a great job explaining how to create basic stitches and provides clear directions on how to create these patterns.
