Easy Crochet Baby Blanket

Pattern by KnitcroAddict

Hello everyone, I’m Wan from KnitcroAddict and I’m so happy to be back at Underground Crafter to share another pattern with you.

Today, I have an amazingly easy, beginner friendly baby blanket. It could be used as a lap blanket or throw as well, but the size is technically closer to a baby blanket. Fortunately, it is so simple to adjust the sizes, so you can go any direction you choose.

I used Bernat Softee Baby Cotton yarn, and there’s no better yarn for a baby blanket in my opinion. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used it on other projects and thought “this will make an incredible baby blanket!”           Finally, here it is!

I hope everyone enjoys this one. Who doesn’t love a good blanket?
