Over the winter, I crocheted two chevron baby blankets for two of my friends who were expecting little girls in April. If you crochet, you'll have to try this pattern. It's great for beginners, because it's super easy. It's just chains and single crochet, which are the two easiest things to do. However, since it is all single crochet, it does take a while to complete, but totally worth it.
I was able to give the purple and white one (my favorite) to my friend Lindsey last night for her baby girl, Adalyn. I hope she'll be able to get some use out of it this winter :)
The pattern can be found HERE, on eat, knit, &d.i.y. I didn't finish my ends like she did in her pattern, I left them pointy because I liked the look of it.
Do you crochet or knit? What kinds of projects do you do during the winter?
