I started this blanket the year before last - and given its small baby blanket size, it really shouldn't have taken that long - at all! I started at the same time as my larger hexy blanket (still not finished - but I'm hoping I get reinvigorated by it!). I used Lucy's pattern (from Attic24).
I also learnt a valuable lesson - that all double knit acrylic yarns are not the same thread size. I originally wanted to include this pink and green in the larger blanket but when I'd crocheted up the circles they were quite a bit smaller than the others.
I like the zigzags though - the larger blanket is following a more random pattern. Done and waiting for whichever baby is born next!
