Isabella

 This is one of the new babies in our family, Little Isabella Gracie!  
I think she looks like the Gerber baby in this, her latest picture.


I am a poor example of a Great Aunt as her nice warm blankie was just mailed off today
even though she was born in the middle of July.

I love working with pinks!  
Here it is my Jeannie Beanie Bumpy Blanket folded in half and draped over my chair.

I love the pretty pink, orange and purple yarn!

The pattern didn't call for a border, but it looked unfinished to me so I added a couple 
rows of single crochet to finish it off.  

Too bad I didn't get it sent out before the cold weather hit North Carolina.  
It was finished December 8th
My pattern is very simple, perfect for beginners.

Chain 60 
Double crochet 40 rows 
Single crochet two rows around adding a chain stitch at each corner.

I used Bernat Baby Blanket yarn.  Machine wash and Dry.
Crochet hook was 5.5MM ( I ) 



Just a note:  This  blanket is now on it's SECOND baby!  Yes, Isabella has a baby sister!


The Blanket has held up well!

You did a great job on this pretty pink blanket. I am sure the mother will be pleased with it no matter when she gets it.

You are absolutely right, she does look like the Gerber baby, adorable!
Handmade blankets are the best and often times become treasures, I'm sure yours will be loved and used.

It is never too late to receive a blanket. Love your yarn and I'm sure that 'Gerber Baby' look-a-like will, too. Happy Pink Saturday!
What a cutie! You aren't a bad aunt at all. You are a special aunt to make her this sweet blanket.
