I made this afghan for my baby girl who arrives next week. Her nursery is green, white and lavender (I'll try to take some pics and post them this weekend). I used a v-stitch pattern on the blanket and did a shell in white on the edge. I wanted to try a new pattern this time around but I bought the Lion Brand Homespun yarn and it is bumpy/wavy and was too hard to find the chains in. The v-stitch creates large "v's" that are easy enough to crochet through. The Homespun yarn is nice and soft. I made a small one that matches for her to take along if she happens to get attached.
