After 3 1/2 months of sporadic crocheting, I finally finished my linked stitch receiving blanket!
I love this stitch. It feels more like creating fabric than traditional crochet. The "fabric" has less holes and drapes more smoothly.
All that is left on this is to block it and weave a ribbon around the border.
I made this one for my future great niece or nephew who has not yet been conceived, so when the baby is actually on its way and we know if it's a boy or girl I'll pick out an appropriate ribbon to finish it. I'm also working on a matching linked-stitch infant hat.
