Finally buckled down and managed to make this before the little monkey was born! For those who are interested, I used Sheepish brand yarn in White(ish), Robin Egg(ish), Lime(ish), Pumpkin(ish), Gun Metal(ish), and Camel(ish). It came out beautifully! I just used dc, two rows of each color. I ended up making up my own border.
Colors are half treble crochet, alternated with rows of white single crochet. This would be a good way to use up old yarn. American half treble crochet: - Yo twice. Insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop (4 loops on hook) - Yo and draw through two loops (3 loops on hook) - Yo and draw through remaining loops (1 loop on hook)
