Q: I have a very talented auntie who has offered to crochet a blanket for my baby boy who is due this summer. My problem is that I can't find a modern/funky/interesting pattern or example (suitable for boys!) to send to her. Do you have an suggestions? I have looked all over and just can't find the modern, striking blanket I'm looking for. My nursery colors are charcoal, orange, sky blue, and white.

Editor: We know we have many readers who crochet so let's hear from you! The example above is a good reminder of how even a traditional pattern can look very modern with great color choices. I found it through Whip Up and it was made by Lucy of Attic 24.
