- Hi Everyone,
I just started this blanket on Thursday and already on round 25 of the fan pattern. I just love it! My original plan was to make this is as a baby blanket for my boss. I'm using Lion Brands Baby First on size 10.5 needles. The holes around the center of the petal seem a big too big for a baby. They are almost 2" wide. Does this matter? I don't have any kids and haven't been around a baby in at least 10 years.
Any input would be fantastic.

- Yes, crocheted baby blankets have holes. However, most crocheted fabrics do not lend themselves to 'pulling' of threads the way - sadly - most knitted fabrics do. The possible danger is that a baby's tiny fingers or - more likely to be overlooked too long - toes get one or more wraps of yarn that can cut off circulation to the teensy digit. It's not the holes per se that are the danger; it's the yarn that can be pulled loose.
