This one is intended as a baby blanket. Not for anyone specific yet, just something I wanted to have on hand for a more traditional parent-to-be that likes the traditional pink for girls and blue for boys. I've made a couple of blue and green baby blankets in the past, but have never done a really pink one before. This was also my first time working with a super bulky yarn and I have mixed feelings about that. On the downside the yarn frayed a lot and was a bit pesky to work with. On the plus side, it only took me about a week to stitch up this approximately 4 ft. diameter blanket. Although I'm not much of a pink person, I do really like this colour and the softness of this acrylic.
This was made using a K size (6.5 mm hook) and Red Heart's Zoomy in Candy Pink. The round ripple is one of my favourite patterns and you can get it as a free download here, as well as from several other locations.
Awww, I love it in this pink! Great job girlie & thanks for sharing the link.
Hugs & Blessings,

This is beautiful! I've been looking into bulky yarns to "size up" some of my dolls the lazy way. The colors on Zoomy are great. Maybe I'll give it a try. :-D
I made this blanket in black and white stripes with some white connecting lines sewn in. It looked like a spider web!
Want to try Round Ripple pattern shown but when I try link it goes to site wanting to sell webspace. Can you tell me where pattern is available? Thank you
