FREE Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern.
The dandy baby blanket is soft, and has a lovely drape to it. It’s crocheted in a cotton material, which makes it great for the babies, but choose any worsted weight or even a baby yarn to whip this up. The pattern is so easy to adjust in size that it really doesn’t matter what yarn and hook size you choose.
It’s also a mindless pattern that allows you to crochet long after your mind has gone to sleep.
And even though it’s worked with only chains and single crochets, I found that it worked up rather quickly. Thus, it makes for a nice last-minute baby shower gift.
