I want to do a fun, creative blanket for my unborn but i have done them most. Any unique ideas, patterns or websites you can share with me?



Nothing is sparking my interest so far.

I have been having a hard time finding one for my boy. So I actually did a straight knit at a bias, and embroidered his initials into them.



I honestly go to Pinterest, get the idea, and look up the stitch name. I don't use patterns (other than the stitch pattern), and make my own. Look up boy crochet in Pinterest.

I like to make a bunch of squares in different stitches (a fun way to learn those hundred different stitch types in the old crochet books) and put them together like a granny square blanket. I also used up all of my tiny balls of yarn from other projects on one big crazy blanket. It was so many random colors, my kids loved it. :)

You could do a fibonacci style one

Or just roll a dice and make that the amount of stripes for that block. It's super simple, but actually looks pretty good.
