In my search for gifts to make I found this little Blanket Buddy. It's perfect for a new baby. Make it any color you chose for a girl or boy and it will be something they will want wherever they go.
The first time I made it I had to start over a few times because I lost track of where I was in the pattern. The pattern is rated a level 4, intermediate, so take your time while you crochet so you don't miss a stitch. Once you've tried it once it will be easier the next time.
