What color blanket should I crochet before knowing the sex of my baby?

I crochet terribly slowly, but I want to crochet a blanket for our new addition. It would be best if I get started now. What color (I want it solid) would be good? My husband doesn't understand that green and yellow are gender neutral, and consequently popular, in the baby world. I don't want him to flip, but at the same time I do want baby to have something baby-ish. Suggestions?

PS-We're thinking a panda-themed nursery.

  • I would do white blanket know then after you have the baby add a border in the gender color.

  • I'd do a white blanket and if you wanted maybe a black border. That would fit a panda theme and babies love contrasting colors!

  • I say Red or White if you dont want to do green or yellow.

  • You can use red. If you go with a panda theme which is black and white then red would look good too.

  • Now days most colors are gender neutral. Bold colors are great for a baby because they can see them well. A Red and White or Black and White pattern would be nice.

  • Yellow is a pretty neutral color. And it will work well with either blue or pink!!

  • I like the white idea! But I have blankets that have all the baby colors in them....Yellow, green, blue and pink and I used them for both my girls and boys because there was blue for the boy and a bit of pink for the girl.
