I made these two blankets for my friend at work having twins. The first is a very pale pink blanket, made with a terrycloth yarn. Very simple - I just used a single crochet with three rows of double crochet for the edge. I really loved how soft and cuddly this little blanket was. I accidentally threw away the yarn packaging, but I think it was just Red Heart Baby Terry (also, it is machine wash and dryable - always a plus).
The second blanket was lavender with a white satin ribbon trim. I used the basket weave stitch, which is quickly becoming my favorite stitch for blankets. It makes them nice and thick, and the texture is quite pretty.
