I think this is a beautiful blanket to make for any baby. I think this is another blanket that you can make in a large variety of colors. If done in white, it would be perfect for a baby shower. Especially if you don't know the sex of the baby. I'm really liking this design. So much so, I'm printing it off right now. And going through my crochet stash. You know, so I can start it right away.
