I love this pretty yarn, it's King Cole Melody and the colour is Rainbow, very girlie.
I have tried to design a blanket to maximise the colours but a plain blue or white without the bows would be lovely for a baby boy.
It's approx 28x28ins / 70x70cms when finished.
The pattern is very easy to follow and there are plenty of step by step photos if you need them.
The border is knitted after and stitched to the main section. The bows are very securely sewn on and are, of course, entirely optional.
The knitting pattern is available from https://www.craftsy.com/knitting/patterns/sale-hush-a-bye-baby-blanket/251241
