My first published pattern!

This is a baby afghan I designed when one of my best friends had a baby 3 yrs ago. I finally mailed it the beginning of this year! By the way, Sydney LOVED her new blankie :0)

Last year I decided to submit the pattern for publication and was accepted by none other than Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss for their new book "Afghans for All Reasons & All Seasons", published by Leisure Arts, November 2007! (ISBN - 160140672X - Item no. - 4422, "Spring Flower" baby afghan) I modified it slightly for the submitted version. www.leisurearts.com

This was my very first published pattern!

I designed it to have no sewing. I love crocheting, but dislike having to sew everything together after. It could also be made in brighter colors for an older child's room.
