My Starburst blanket pattern would make a great gift for a new baby, or just someone who could do with a burst of lovely crochet cosiness. This blanket is a great way to use those random balls of yarn that you never quite found the perfect project for. I would recommend using 200g of DK yarn for a blanket that measures around 1m. Feel free to keep going though - the bigger the better! Use any kind of yarn with a corresponding hook. Tension is not critical for this pattern.
