Hand crocheted and natural in color, this soft baby blanket exhibits a bevy of animals parading around the outer edge of the afghan from corner to corner and around again. It has a middle made of geometric shapes that can be read several ways. Sometimes diamonds, or squares, and one observer thought they formed hearts. The outer edge is ribbed. In all of it's textured appearance, it's very, very soft and cuddly. What baby wouldn't enjoy being wrapped in it, or laying on it during tummy time, or sitting and learning visually the names of the animals that mommy and daddy points out to them. Teach them about the circus, or take them on an imaginary safari, the fun never ends with this one. As baby ages from crib to bed, it will make a great wall hanging art piece. Very unisex in it's warm color, it works for a boy or a girl and makes it an wonderful heirloom to pass on and on, generation to generation.
