This is a blankie I just crocheted for my friends’ soon-to-be-born baby. I have sort of a love/hate relationship with crochet. I love starting projects- the more complicated the better! but I find finishing them completely tedious. Thankfully, this blanket was not especially torturous to make, AND I even like how it came out. If you’re interested in making it, the pattern is called “Itsy Bitsy Spider Web,” and I found in Our Best Baby Afghans (Leisure Arts, 1996). If you can’t hunt down that book, there is likely to be something similar on Ravelry which is a great resource for down-loadable knitting and crochet patterns, most of which are free.
