The Yarn That’s Perfect for this Baby Blanket
When the idea first came to me for this blanket, I knew that I wanted to use Lion Brand Heartland Yarn because it is incredibly soft and comes in such beautiful earthy colors.
The Stitches for the Pebble Blanket
The half double crochets are worked a little differently than you may be used to, but that is what gives this blanket the Stoney pebble-like look. I will explain how to work these special half double crochets up in the abbreviation section below.
To finish up this fun blanket, I did one row of single crochet’s along the border to give it a clean finished look. Wallah! A finished baby blanket!
This blanket would be cute either as a baby girl crochet blanket or a baby boy crochet blanket. Happy Crochet Baby Blanket making!
