Waves Baby Blanket

My friend Nellie had her third, adorably cute, baby recently and so I was again busy crocheting a little gift for her new little girl.  I had always planned to use navy and white (Nellie loves a nautical look) but waited to decide on the pink (or red) based on the gender of the baby.  I love the pink and played with the stripe size and order, but decided on wide, even stripes.

I chose the wave stitch to match up with the nautical colors.  The pattern is the wave stitch with a tulip border.  The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in Neon Pink, White and Dark Country Blue.
