Easy Crochet Blanket Stitch Pattern
This blanket is designed to be a small baby blanket or lap throw which makes it the perfect go to project to use up extra yarn. I had a lot of leftover yarn (which I am willing to be you do to!) from past projects so I decided to use all different brands to create a fun unique baby blanket.
The Colorful Yarn
For this blanket I mostly used Red Heart Soft Yarn. If you wanted to get a similar look I’d suggest this yarn. It has beautiful almost shiny look to it which makes the blanket look even better in my opinon. If you don’t have that yarn handy any worsted weight yarn such as Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice would work just as well.
MAKES AN AMAZING BABY SHOWER GIFT
The colors used also lends itself to being unisex and is perfect to use as a baby shower gift! If you are ready to make this baby blanket read on down for the full, FREE pattern using the crochet blanket stitch!
