The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Baby Blanket
I designed this soft crochet baby blanket after picking up the Isaac Mizrahi looking glass yarn at my local craft store. I knew as soon as I felt it that it would make a perfect baby blanket due to its super soft texture. It is amazingly cozy! Lion Brand Homespun is pretty similar in texture if you are looking to find an easily accessible brand.
This Blanket Uses Easy Crochet Stitches!
This easy pattern is made up entirely of half double crochet stitches and the simplicity of only using one stitch makes it a great beginner pattern! So if you are just learning how to crochet, then this crochet baby blanket is for you!
