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 yarn brands to create a fun, unique baby blanket. Learn more about the yarn below.
The Yarn Used in this Blanket
For this blanket, I mostly used Red Heart Soft Yarn. Red Heart Soft is an 100% acrylic, worsted weight four yarn and is astonishingly soft as the name of the yarn label suggests.
I also used a few different colors of Caron Simply Soft mixed in as well for some extra fun colors.
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. Take a look at a few of my favorite yarn colors of these brands to see which one you’d like to make your crochet project with.
Do you need a substitute yarn? If you don’t have that yarn handy, any worsted weight yarns such as Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice or Caron Simply Soft will work just as well.
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 tutorial!
