I used to make a crocheted baby blanket all the time. The pattern was from the back of the label from Jamie baby yarn. I think Lion Brand bought them out and changed the packaging. I used to keep those labels for future reference and I moved and I can't find it anywhere. :-(

The pattern was a series of dc's and a sc in a cluster and it looked like you were making a cluster that leaned to the left on the first row and when you turned, it leaned the opposite way, almost giving a vertical zig-zag effect. It had scalloped edges and was really a quick pattern, but very pretty when done.

I'm sure I could play around and figure it out again by making several swatches until I get it, but I'm kind of short on time.

I need to make a blanket and could sure use your help!

Post a picture if you can when you get started. So if anybody sees my pattern they would know what it looks like.

I definitely will. The yarn I've ordered is royal blue with dashes of other colors in it. It should be perfect for a very special little boy.

I'm looking forwarded to seeing it myself. It sounds like the perfect yarn for the pattern.

Lionbrand still posts the pattern you are talking about. I have made the afghan, but not the other items with it. Here is the link with the picture:

Hope this is what you are talking about.

Okay, so it's started and the yarn is so soft. Great for a baby blanket. The label even says it's saliva resistent!?! Interesting.
Just beginning, but on my way!

What I can see its turning out nice. I'm like you I like making my baby blankets out of primary colors versus an pastel color. You can't go wrong being Saliva Resistent :lol:

Okay, so it took a while, and with several other WIPs still going, I got the baby blanket done... Booties and hat to match will be started.

I'll attach the picture tomorrow.

Wow did that ever turned out pretty. Thanks for taking the time to show me. I always think the bright colors will be great for the little one. You have all the primary colors in the afghan blue, red and yellow.

I recently finished the Jamie's Baby Blanket for a baby that is due in December. I have made this blanket several times. I still have the label from the Jamie yarn that has the pattern on it. I absolutely love this pattern as it is so easy to do and since it isn't complicated, I can work on it while watching TV. This latest blanket I wanted to make with yarn from my stash. I found six skeins of a brushed acrylic yarn in a tan color with areas where a little bit of orange show in the yarn. The blanket turned out really nice in this yarn and I decided to crochet an edging using Patons Simply Soft in the color "Gold or Oro," which is a variegated yarn which has orange, tan and a peach in it. When I added this edging, it really put the finishing touch to the blanket.
