If you’re looking for something easy, yet cozy, then this simply stripes baby blanket is just what you need. Although a bit time consuming, it’s a mindless pattern once you get going on it.
This crochet baby blanket is crocheted in a nice solid stitch using a worsted weight yarn. It’s great for covering
For this blanket, I chose a grey, blue and white color combination for a little boy. But for a girl you could substitute a light pink for the blue and have it look just as pretty as this one.
And since there is no stitch pattern, you can crochet this to any size you want; one for baby and one for yourself!
