So when baby Freya was born I asked "What would she like for the baby?"
A 'Shawl' was mentioned, but I explained that Freya would probably be 13 years old by the time I finished it, so we compromised on a blanket - and I threw in a Squiddly Diddly for good measure :)
The blanket is a James C Brett yarn called Cotton On, a cotton acrylic mix which works up beautifully, and it is in a variegated colour-way of beige and cream - beautiful - and a change from pink!
The pattern is a daisy pattern, by Lucy Lyons, which I found on Ravelry - you can download it for free but I believe you need to be a member.
It really did work up nicely. I made it to be a good pram size, but said when she is ready for the cot to bring it back and I will add a border on to make it bigger.
