Hey! guess what I noticed? These colors are truly an exact replica of the Caron Cotton Cakes self-striping yarn that I bought at Michael's fairly recently. I actually made a v-neck kimono top with it. The colors are amazing! The new types of cotton yarns that are out there nowadays are really superior to the older, basic 100% cottons of the past. Try them out and I am sure you will be hooked!

If you enjoy working shells, this is the ideal project for you. The only downside is the long Starting Chain (133) that you cant really swap out for a Foundation row, so youll need to pay attention and not twist the chain when working Row 1. Once you work the second row, its a repeat from then on. Even the trim is worked as a mini shell! Theres a Print Friendly option as well.

If you dont know the gender of the baby that you are making this blanket for then just stick with gender neutral colors. Teal and grey are great gender neutral colors. I actually really like any assorted colors for gender neutrality. It can include blue, green, pink, red, white, grey, yellow -- all children know and learn those colors and can be wrapped up in them.

Just love this baby blanket! Cannot wait to try!

This is a beautiful Sea Shell Stitch Baby Blanket! I love the colors and the stitch is so easy once you get it down. I need to make one in yellow and not sure what other colors to go with it? We are not sure what the new baby will be, so I want to make a neutral color blanket. Any ideas? I'm thinking yellow and greens. The written pattern is well written and easy to read and follow. I'm looking forward to picking the colors and get started. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

I made this blanket for a friend's baby boy using Caron Simply Soft and it came out absolutely stunning! As a rather new crocheter I found the instructions to be very clear and easy to follow. The new mom uses it everyday 3 This pattern is actually what inspired me to teach myself to crochet.

I absolutely love this pattern. I just finished a throw for my grandsons bus driver. She loved it. Just found out I have a new great great niece or nephew on the way, time to start crocheting this one again

Tried to print but only got half the directions NOT happy!

I have made several of "The Stitchin Mommies" patterns and they do indeed make a beautiful afghan for that special baby!!!

I have made this several times in different colors...works up beautifullly and I love the border.
