  28. I love this pattern. The white edging that your aunt did seems to be different than the pattern instructions. Can you tell me how she crocheted the final white edging?

  31. Thank you Ana BC for sharing this beautiful blanket that your aunt made! I don't know if you realize HOW popular this baby blanket is on Pinterest but just from my pin alone, I have many, many re-pins from others. I was fortunate to have this book that the pattern is in so I was tickled to be able to crochet it for my first grandchild - a girl - that was just born this past week. I was elated that my son and daughter-in-law used this blanket for the hospital pictures. I got lots of compliments. I added an additional shade of pink besides the other 3 colors that was used. I added Victorian Rose from the Caron Simply Soft yarn and I really like how it came out. I would love to send you a picture of it but your site doesn't allow me to download images.
