A friend of mine and her husband are expecting their first baby in a few weeks and I wanted to make them a baby blanket. I had visions in my head of what it should look like, but my reality never lives up to those visions. The theme for their nursery is comic book superheroes. After ditching my first two attempts, I came upon a pattern I thought would work. I had chosen the colors of cobalt blue, red and yellow all in cotton. This is what I came up with.
Sorry the first picture is so dark, and the second one is blurry, but I am hoping you can get the jist of the pattern. The hat turned out ok, but I did love the blanket.
I used the Optimistic Stripe Throw pattern from Redheart for the body of the blanket. I did not like the border though for a baby boy so I opted for the border on the Sweet Potato Baby Blanket.
