The first blanket I ever made was for my 5 year old daughter. I recently completed it, and my 6 year old son even sat with me and did his first few stitches! The pattern is Kathy Merrick's Babette Blanket.
I used 17 balls of Gong by OrnaghiFilati yarn, a G6/4mm hook by Susan Bates, and a Large-Eyed Blunt Needle for attaching the squares.
I absolutely adore the blanket. I loved choosing the colors, the varying square sizes prevented burn-out, and it feels like heaven. It was so enjoyable I'm now making one for my son!
