Working on one for a boy this time. Very similar to the last one, just including some greens and reds instead of pinks and yellows.
Such a simple concept really. I'm using a 4.0mm crochet hook, and a variety of different plys of cotton (in probably about eight different colours) I like to use cotton for baby blankets, because is can be machine washed and tumble dried, and comes out softer than ever!
Start with a row of chains the width you would like the blanket to be. Then work a row of single crochet along the chains. At the end of each row you need to turn your work and change colours. Randomly choose the stitch type at the beginning of each row. I choose either sc, hdc or dc... depending on my fancy. Just randomly changing colours and stitch types with each row. Don't weave in the ends... that's way too much like hard work. The ends will become the tassel when the blanket is finished.
I'm about one third of the way through at the moment...
