  1. I have decided to make your baby blanket pattern I got off Pinterest. It uses two different yarns crocheted together. You call it your Blanket stitch blanket. I even purchased the same colors that you used. What I would like to know is if you have a baby hat pattern using the same yarn and same stitch with 2 yarns crocheted together to match the baby blanket. I hope to make this for my neighbor who just had a baby girl on Nov. 14, 2019.

    Thank you for any help that you can give me

    1. Hi Jan, I am so glad you picked the blanket stitch blanket to make! 🙂 I hope you love it. I do not have a hat to match, but that would be a great idea! Happy Crocheting!
