|isn't this cake GORGEOUS!? it was delicious too. :)|
When we found out they were expecting a girl I decided a blanket with those colors was in order for this special little one. I love to crochet and am always looking to try new designs in my blankets. I wanted to mimic the small square boxes and incorporate the white accents of a Tiffany box but I needed just the right color blue.
After some searching I found the perfect yarn! I chose Caron brand Simply Soft in Blue Mint and then white for accenting.

When each of our kiddos was born several of my aunts made them blankets, one of them was just the stitch I was looking for. Perfect little squares! My plan was starting to come together now.
|One of Savannah's baby blankets, this is the stitch I was looking to replicate.|
I decided to use the blue as the main color and the white as accents. I'm really pleased with how it came out.

After I crocheted the blanket itself I had to add in the 'twisties' (as my oldest calls them).

We did these together and decided on three white strands with one blue all around expect in the corners where we reversed that by using three blue and one white.

If anyone would like the pattern just let me know, I didn't use one but could write out directions on how I made this if there was interest.
