When someone you knows is having a baby, one of the first gift ideas I think of is the baby blanket. This is even more so when you are making that gift yourself! There are many kinds, styles, and qualities of baby blankets. But one thing I have always noticed about them all is their shape: rectangular, or to shake that up, square. When a friend announced they were having a baby, I decided to shake things up a bit further. So may I present what I am calling the Spring Medallion, or circular baby blanket. I used a nice cotton blend yarn in a variety of colors. Great for a spring baby, and without some of the risks that come with using acrylic.
