Turquoise Baby Delight

Finished knitting a baby afghan as a gift for a friend of ours.  This project was made in a basket weave pattern of alternating blocks (multiples of 8 stitches) in knit and purl stitches.  The afghan has a 1.5 inch border in seed stitch.  I used Big Twist  Rainbow Classic Yarn (11oz skein).  I like to make my baby afghans large enough to be used into the toddler years.  This one measures 45 by 45 inches.  Our friend loved it and it is our wish that the new born baby boy will be warm and content in it.
