My friends Maria and Mario are expecting their second child in November. So I decided I wanted to make them a blanket. I really only wanted to make it gender neutral, since they won't know the sex until the baby is born. I also only wanted to use one color and have a nice design, and I have to say this pattern is perfect. It has a nice pattern, that is easy to complete. I have loved making this blanket. The yarn I used was Berroco Vintage which was a nice balance. My friends are from Mexico and when I was talking to my family about a color my mom suggested a "Mexican" Green, I feel this color is perfect for the family, it's not too soft, not too vibrant it's just right. My only complaint is that the last repeat of the blanket felt like it took FOREVER! The pattern is simple and looks fabulous. I'll post pictures as soon as I can.
