The last baby blanket

This is the last baby blanket I am making for someone I know, at least until someone else gets pregnant.
I made this blanket for some dear friends who are going to be first time grandparents.

I got the pattern from a blog I follow The Crochet Dude, he calls it the Monet Afghan. (It is not a baby blanket but a full size adult blanket.) I just used sport weight baby yarn.

This is an easy pattern to follow and a cool way to crochet blocks together. I didn't crochet it together the way he does because I didn't want a lot of holes for the baby's fingers and toes to get hung up in.
It is quite large for a baby blanket if you wanted to make it smaller you could do 9 blocks instead of 12.

I plan on using this same pattern for another blanket sometime in the future. My next project is an afghan I am making for my son.
