November baby blanket

I found a new-to-me crocheted edge that I love!  It's from the book The Crochet Stitch Bible by Betty Barnden and it's called "Crown Picot Edging."  A couple at church is expecting their first child later this month.  They will find out if the baby is a boy or a girl when the baby is born, so I made single crochet rounds in gray, pink, blue, yellow, and green before finishing up with the crown edging. The edging does have a strong tendency to curl, so unblocked it looks more like a ruffle than a crown.  However, using a good steam iron on it flattens it enough to coronate the blanket. (The body of the blanket is crocheted using the "Turtle Stitch" from the same book.)
