This blanket is designed to be a small baby blanket or lap throw, which makes it the perfect go-to project to use up extra yarn.
I had a lot of leftover yarn (which I am willing to bet you do too!) from past projects, so I decided to use all different brands to create a fun, unique baby blanket. Learn more about the yarn below.
For this blanket, I mostly used Red Heart Soft Yarn. Red Heart Soft is a worsted weight four yarn and is amazingly soft as the name suggests. I also used a few different colors of Caron Simply Soft.
If you wanted to get a similar look, I’d suggest these two yarns.
It has a beautiful almost shiny look to it which makes the blanket look even better in my opinion. You’ll love it! Promise.
If you don’t have that yarn handy, any worsted weight yarn such as Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice or Caron Simply Soft will work just as well.
Perfect for a Baby Shower Gift
The colors in this blanket lends themselves being unisex and is perfect to use as a baby shower gift! If you are ready to make this baby blanket read on down for the full, FREE pattern using the crochet blanket stitch!
