Baby Stan has a jungle/monkey theme in his room, so I decided this blanket pattern would look have a bit of a jungle look with these colors:
This is Red Heart Designer Sport yarn which I had never used before, but I love how soft it is, how it handled to sew and the colors are magnificent. This is Latte, Pistachio and Dutch Blue. The pattern is Downey Soft Zig-Zags by Carole Prior. It’s published in Leisure Arts #2853, Our Best Baby Afghans.
Although the blanket is crochet, I knitted a coordinating hat.
The pattern for the hat is one of my own.
This blanket pattern is special to me, because I made my own dear son a blanket using it. I knitted him a ribbed coordinating hat. This was his outdoor wear for his first winter.
