a star baby blanket

There are some boys coming along, and this is for one of them - the baby girl hanging out on it is for scale:

I got the bug to make this pattern after reading this thread on craftster. Yes, it's an 80+ page thread, but I was nursing, and it got me itching to make one of my own, so it ended up as a productive read. And now I want to make another one; this blanket pattern is lovely, and does a great job showing off the odd ends of blue yarn I've collected over the years. I think the white cotton is what really makes the colors pop.

I really, really want to do another one. And my older two kids are each bugging me for a star blanket of their own, so I think there are more of these in my future.

peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

I LOVE that blanket! I may have to make one like it. Don't know when I'll get a chance, but Yasmina is the first baby not to have a homemade blanket, and she was born in July, so a star blanket seems appropriate.

Thank you for participating in Finished Object Friday.

Jess, the colours on this really remind me of the rugs we had from the village. A must have for every child's room. I truly cherish that you're making something like those (but cuddly-er) for the kidos.

this is so gorgeous...I want a grown-up sized one...though the baby sized is just adorable and perfect for showing off the nice star shape. love your color arrangement, too!

I LOVE it! I went out and bought some yarn (I was almost out) to make my own, but I'm new to crochet and couldn't figure out the pattern. I'm making a bag instead... but I'll come back to this one once I've learned a little more!
