Crochet pattern: Sweet Treat Baby Blanket

Sweet Treat Baby Blanket, free crochet pattern in Darice All Things You Bulky yarn by Underground Crafter | Textured granny squares and bulky yarn combine to create a cuddly blanket that doubles as a baby floor mat.It’s no secret that I love crocheting baby blankets, or that I find crocheting granny squares soothing, or that I love bright colors. So, it should be no surprise that I had a wonderful time making this motif baby blanket in vibrant colors!

For this pattern, I picked two, bold solids in All Things You Bulky and a coordinating, variegated yarn. The vibrant colors make a statement wherever you place this blanket!

I prefer the slip stitch seam for baby blankets because it’s very durable and holds up to a lot of washing, but it doesn’t add too much bulk on the wrong (back) side.

Originally, I planned to add a border, but once I put together the blanket, I thought it looked complete without it.
