About the Pattern:
- This crochet blanket is made with a baby in mind – there are no huge holes like many crochet baby blanket patterns have for baby’s fingers to get caught in and yet it is still lightweight and breathable.
- You can adjust the number of starting chains to make the blanket bigger or smaller.
- While many baby blanket patterns are more feminine, this is a perfect crochet blanket for a baby boy or a gender-neutral/unisex baby gift (but would also be great for a baby girl).
- You can use any size 3 yarn (also referred to as DK or Light Worsted).
- The blanket is completely reversible and looks beautiful on either side.
- The free version of the pattern can be found here. All of the information from the free version is included in the PDF.
