** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

Pinwheel baby blanket




I finished this pinwheel baby blanket last night. I crocheted it with (discontinued) Red Heart Jeweltones in "opal" using a "J" hook. It measures 33" across. The darker photo shows the pinwheel - the lighter photo shows the pretty colors. This baby blanket will go into my craft room and wait until it's needed.
