I have a baby shower to go to in March and I am in the process of making a set of blanket, hat, and booties as a gift. I am using Caron Simply Soft in off white, soft green, and lavender blue. I picked these colors since I don’t know the sex yet and those are pretty baby neutral. The booties and hat are finished since they are pretty quick to make, just an hour or two.
The blanket is in a ripple pattern with four rows of each color and is about half finished now. I like this ripple as it is a very repetitive pattern and easy to keep track of your spot since it is all in 3’s. The purple looks a bit darker here than in real life for some reason but the other two are pretty accurate.
