This sweet blanket is filled with motifs that actually look like daffodil blossoms. Of course you must work it up in yellow otherwise what would be the point. You could work the rounds surrounding the blossoms in a pale Spring Green, but thats way more work than Im willing to do. Unfortunately, it requires my old Join As You Go bugaboo. The original pattern is here http//www.redheart.com/free-patterns/sunshine-baby == -blanket-0

This afghan is so light and airy looking. By using the yellow yarn it sure does look like a field of daffodils. Either a boy or a girl would be able to use this is a blanket and the Mom would be more than happy to show it off.

This Daffodil Baby Blanket is so delightful. The yellow is just so warm and inviting. I enjoy creating crochet projects that utilize motifs. That makes for a great take-along project.Unfortunately, at this time I have no need to make any baby blankets as no one in the family is expecting, but I'll keep this on hand.

You could make this into a nice poncho or even a shawl

Yes, I agree with the others that although this is a very beautiful blanket, it is not suitable for tiny ones. Way too much of a hazard with the stitching on this blanket. It is much more suitable for adults and would work perfectly as a lap blanket for slightly chilly mornings.

Has anyone made this? Is it really "easy" as the pattern states? I want to make this as a lap throw for my mother but want to hear from someone who has followed the pattern and finds it easy to follow. Thanks!

I agree with ekozora6 that this design has many big spaces where those little toes can get stuck. Anyway, for whatever purpose you want to make this blanket, here is the link to the diagram http//www.allfreecrochet.com/masterimages/files/Da == ffodil-Assembly-Diagram--1--.jpg. Thanks for featuring the pattern in front of the page.

Very cute blanket, but not sure if it is good for baby. Looks like there are a lot of open spaces that little fingers toes could get stuck in. Would be nice for an adult or even turned into a shawl.

Anyone who has had or been around a baby would NEVER make this as a baby blanket. Make it for a lovely porch throw or couch afghan and keep it away from small fingers and toes that could get caught in those large holes. Red Heart should know better even if its designers don't.

It is, to me, just an idea to do with those squares, please if you have better ideas share them, otherwise if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything.

although this pattern looks gorgeous. it looks as if little fingers and toes can get caught and wrapped up in the large holes causing the need to possibly cut the blanket. the holes are large and could cause tangles and wraps around fingers, toes, arms or legs. I would NOT recommend this pattern for a baby
